11th Annual

GIS Day @ KU


Wednesday, November 14, 2012
Alderson Auditorium
4th Floor - Kansas Union

GIS Day @ KU is part of a nationwide event to promote awareness of geographic information systems (GIS), and how we use this evolving tool to analyze our world. We continue our tradition of bringing together a community of GIS users from academia, business and government.

The 2012 symposium will also include an information fair with vendors from academia and local business that will run throughout the day. As always, GIS Day @ KU is FREE and open to the public. Please register so we can plan for ample refreshments and provide pre-printed name tags.
