Celebrate GIS Day at the University of Oregon

University of Oregon DREAM Lab (Knight 122) – MAP

The University of Oregon will celebrate GIS Day on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 by hosting an open house from 1-5PM. All are invited to learn how geographic information system (GIS) technology supports your everyday life.

GIS professionals representing private and government sectors will be in attendance for networking and information sharing. A keynote talk by Rafa Gutierrez from Mapbox will begin at 2PM. Come before or stay after to discover drone technology, print and interactive maps, and GIS survey equipment. Dig your hands into the augmented reality sandbox or try to navigate using tactile maps.

Representatives from the following institutions will be on hand to answer questions and talk about how they utilize GIS: City of Springfield, City of Eugene, Emerald People’s Utilities District (EPUD), Eugene Water and Electric Board (EWB), MapBox, Quantum Spatial, ENVIEW, Lane Council of Governments (LCOG), Lane County, and The Urban Collaborative.

We join hundreds of organizations worldwide in hosting gatherings that will serve to ignite the imagination of future innovators who will advance global progress using GIS.
