GIS Day 2021

November 17 All day

GIS (or geographic information systems) Day is an international celebration of GIS technology. GIS provides a scientific framework for gathering, analysing, and visualising geographic data to inform decisions. The event is celebrated by GIS professionals and practitioners across the world, and offers anyone the opportunity to learn more about GIS, its applications, and benefits – in their work and in the world more broadly.

Many of this year’s events will be held virtually, making them even more accessible. Among the organisations in Africa celebrating GIS Day 2021, are:

  • South Africa’s Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment
  • Statistics South Africa
  • Students for the Exploration and Development of Space in Zimbabwe
  • Geospatial Tanzanie
  • UON GESA and Taita Taveta in Kenya
