Come and celebrate the power of Geographic Information Systems and spatial thinking with the UofL Center for GIS and the Department of Geographic and Environmental Sciences!

GIS Day is an “international forum for users of GIS technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society.” UofL hosts GIS Day to build knowledge of GIS in our community and develop an understanding of our world. The theme of GIS Day 2022: Inspiring Spatial Citizens is intended to empower a wide demographic to engage their spatial awareness as a powerful tool in the growth and betterment of our communities. Inspiring Spatial Citizens requires exposure across the many sectors of GIS and mapping work - from entrepreneurs to city data technicians to creative young people. Because we are all citizens of this world, and within smaller communities, we hope GIS Day inspires innovation, belonging, imagination, and revelation in each of our attendees.
