The Map Library is hosting a whole day of events on Tuesday, Nov. 15 to celebrate GIS Day.
Participants from various departments will gather to hear faculty and students describe how GIS and other mapping strategies are used to visualize research. There will also be workshops on data use and GIS, as well as geography trivia — with prizes.
Although GIS has been used on campus for many years, the campus site license purchased by James A. Gibson Library last spring has provided wider access to the software.
The event is part of Geography Awareness Week, which is Nov. 13 to 18. Tuesday’s events are held in partnership with the Brock University Geographical Society, the Brock Environmental Sustainability Research Unit and the Library Data Research Service. It will include a pizza lunch and a GIS cake.
