Every year in November, GIS Day is celebrated around the world. This year, the University of Redlands, the City of Redlands, and Esri are celebrating our GIS-infused community on Wednesday, November 20 on the University campus.
The day will begin at 1 p.m. with an open house in the Hunsaker Lounge. Until 4 p.m., visitors will be able to experience GIS through mapping and technology demonstrations and also find out how the city of Redlands uses GIS for reporting issues using smart phones. From 4 to 5 p.m., 2013 MS GIS graduates will present projects in Gregory Hall Room 161, and at 6:15, Dr. Hal Nelson, research assistant professor at the School of Politics and Economics, Claremont Graduate School, will speak on “Getting to Yes – The Sustainable-Energy Modeling Program, a Decision Support System for Infrastructure Siting” in the Casa Loma Room. A dinner will be held beforehand at 5:30 p.m. To R.S.V.P. for that specific event and dinner by Nov. 15 please contact Vanessa Siliezar at 909-748-8769.
Join us for GIS Day and experience firsthand how the power of GIS is improving life, enhancing learning, and helping to solve real-world problems in Redlands and beyond. This event is free and open to the public.
