Lakeland celebrates GIS Day

Posted: October 26, 2018 | Updated: November 16, 2018

Lakeland Community College is joining the global community to recognize the important role that geographic information systems (GIS) play in mapping and discovering the world. The event, called “GIS Day” is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the main campus at 7700 Clocktower Dr., Kirtland, in the H-Building, first floor HIVE.

GIS Day will include exhibits, demonstrations and presentations from area experts that will highlight how Northeast Ohio is using geospatial technologies like GIS. There will be presentations on the use of GIS for the Euclid Creek restoration, asset management for NASA, humanitarian mapping for hurricanes, and a drone presentation (weather permitting). In addition, in the Maker Space area of HIVE, there will be a humanitarian map-a-thon, button making and screen-printing. Professors will also be on hand to answer questions about Lakeland’s geospatial technology degree and certificate programs.

Free food and refreshments will be served.

The event is free and open to the public.
