Discovering the World Through GIS

GIS Day 2015 will be held at UC Berkeley's Mulford Hall,. This year's event is co-hosted by the Geospatial Innovation Facility (GIF) and BayGeo with support from UrtheCast and American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Pacific Southwest (ASPRS).

Not only are we celebrating all things geospatial for GIS Day, we are also celebrating the GIF’s 10th year anniversary! The GIF was formally started at a GIS Day event in 2005. 

As in previous years, we will be having a poster session, many exciting talks, and refreshments. It is a great time to network and catch up with what is going on with mapping around the SF Bay Area. Instead of a Keynote talk, this year we will be holding a Plenary Session in the early evening with local innovators from Bay Area Industry, Government and Non-Profits who all focus on state-of-the-art geospatial technology and solutions. The discussion will cover such topics as what skills they look for in recruiting, where they see the geospatial world going in the next 5 years, and how we can better partner around the bay to stay at the forefront of the geospatial revolution.

GIS Day is free and open to the public but we do request that you RSVP, so we know how many participants to expect!

Also, we are inviting the geospatial community to participate in GIS Day during our poster, lightening talk, and presentation sessions. If you’d like to present your work or display a poster, please indicate your interest on the RSVP form.
