Celebrate GIS Day 2017

Originally started in 1999, GIS Day encourages the education of geography and the uses of GIS. Intended to be a grassroots initiative to display and highlight the practical use cases of GIS technology.

GIS has enormous hidden potential to increase productivity in every facet of our lives, from finding the most optimal route home to solving complex societal problems such as governance.
In the spirit of GIS day many municipalities and regions across Ontario are hosting special GIS events with the goal to promote and educate the public of the endless possibilities of GIS. Check out our list below for a GIS workshop near you!
