GIS Day is an international event that recognizes the importance of geography, advances in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology, and recent successes in spatial analysis. GIS is used to map and analyze data in order to better understand our world and effectively make decisions.

This year’s event will showcase a wide range of GIS products, tools, and applications from Denver’s GIS community.   Come learn how GIS is being deployed to improve the city.

To celebrate this year’s event, there will be a live music performance, free lunch, cake, prizes, presentations, interactive map displays and much more.
