You are all welcome to visit us at the Geospatial Innovation Facility for this year’s GIS Day Celebration on Wednesday, November 18th. This year’s event is co-hosted by the GIF and BayGeo (formerly the Bay Area Automated Mapping Association, or BAAMA).
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
GIS Day is free and open to the public but we do request that you RSVP, so we know how many participants to expect! What: GIS Day
