    Save the Date and Register today! The State of Indiana’s GIS Day is Wednesday, November 15, 2023, 8:30am to 3:30pm.

    Participate in our celebration of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the State of Indiana, and beyond. GIS is a set of tools, data, and people that gather, analyze, and visualize spatial data (maps!) to help us make better decisions. The Indiana Geographic Information Office’s GIS Day will focus on helping others learn more about geography and the real-world applications of GIS that help make a difference. GIS day is our opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the GIS community in Indiana, and more broadly. This is our chance to share accomplishments and inspire others to use GIS!

    The event is free and will take place in the Indiana Government Center South Building Atrium (located at 302 W Washington St, Indianapolis, IN 46204). Lunch will be included, courtesy of Sanborn, and sessions will focus on GIS Implementation, Technical Practice in GIS, and GIS Innovations in Indiana and elsewhere.

    Registration may be limited to the first 400 participants.
