Lightning talks, great prizes, cool tech highlight Wednesday’s GIS Day 2019 on Wednesday
The Clemson Center for Geospatial Technologies will host GIS Day 2019 on Wednesday, November 13, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Center’s location at 412 Cooper Library. The event brings together GIS professionals, faculty, students and staff to show off the real-world applications for GIS in a fun and dynamic way.
GIS Day will feature short “lightning talk” presentations from faculty and GIS professionals from across the region, including a keynote address form geographer and ESRI Education Director Joseph Kerski. Other talks from professionals and Clemson faculty will cover transportation, artificial intelligence, land planning and more.
Eight different GIS Day contests offer a slew of great prizes, from a Dabo Swinney-signed football, to a drone, to Bluetooth speakers. You can check out the full list of contests and prizes on the GIS Day website.
A mapathon at 11:30 will offer free lunch to those in participate. Mapathons help underserved or recovering areas through digital mapping and no previous experience is required to take part!
Additionally, GIS Day features drone/VR/AR tours, a map gallery and a lot more. Visit bit.ly/gisday2019 for complete GIS Day information.
