GIS Day at Temple University

We are excited to host GIS Day at Temple University on Wednesday November 16th.

GIS Day at Temple is part of the national celebration of how mapping technology can make a difference in our society. The event is free and open to the public, including a keynote address by Dr. Paul Torrens, Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at NYU, lightning talks and posters from researchers in Geography and Urban Studies, History, Computer Science, and Health Sciences, and reception.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is the technology behind anything that combines data with maps. If you've ever used Google Maps or Yelp, you're using GIS. It lets us visualize, question, analyze, and interpret data to understand relationships and patterns across space and has wide applications across many fields. Join us to hear from academics and professionals who are using GIS in the fields of business, health, education, planning, journalism and more.
