GIS Day is a global imitative started by GIS software developer Esri, to highlight the uses and benefits of geographic information system (GIS) technology, and GIS professionals’ work through educational grassroots events.
GIS is a scientific framework for gathering, analysing, and visualising geographic data to help make better decisions. On GIS Day, learn about geography and the real-world applications of GIS that are making a difference in society.
There are many global events taking place, many virtually, and several of them across Africa. Whether you are a professional cartographer, a GIS manager, or a geography newbie, everyone is welcomed and encouraged to learn and participate.
