GIS Days 2022: Empowering Communities through GIS
April 7 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Geographic Information Science is everywhere. It keeps us from getting lost as we drive. It smooths logistics. It unlocks patterns that are invisible until mapped. And it entertains us with games like geocaching and Pokémon Go.
UWM is hosting GIS Days from Wednesday, April 6 through Friday, April 8, 2022.
Wednesday, April 6 and Thursday, April 7 will feature virtual workshops and talks on a variety of topics.
In-Person Friday (April 8) at the UWM Golda Meir Library (2311 E. Hartford Ave., Milwaukee) will have lightning talks, exhibits, student posters, tours of the American Geographical Society Library map collection, and a keynote by nationally-recognized GIS thought leader Eva Reid.
This year, GIS Days added an emphasis on how GIS amplifies secondary and higher education and how it leverages criminal justice resources.
New this year are short, free-form virtual birds-of-a-feather meet-ups. Share what you know, learn what you don’t, and network. You’ll vote for your favorite topics when you register.
Space is limited at GIS Days. Register here for your selection of workshops, talks, and events.
