GIS Week is November 16-20

Celebrating Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Day looks a little different this year. Universities across Ontario and Québec have joined forces to present workshops, and lectures, open to all, online.

Events include: the Geography of Pokémon Go, QGIS, the mapping of conservation, of history and of COVID-19, as well as networking events and a trivia night.

Organizers note that technical experience is not required. “Maps and mapping technology are more accessible now than ever before [and] no prior GIS experience [is] required.”

The Brock University Map, Data & GIS Library will present a hands-on workshop as part of the week’s events.

Western University’s Map and Data Centre is the hub for all events. View the full event listing and prepare to broaden your horizons.
