Save the Date! GIS Day is November 18

As successful as this event was during its debut last year, it promises to be bigger and better this year.  Hosted by Los Angeles County, many departments, private industry, local colleges, universities, and some cities, will take part in GIS Day 2009. 

GIS Day is a global event which takes place every third Wednesday of November, as part of the National Geographic Society's Geography Awareness Week.  GIS Day’s main focus is on educating the public about geographic information systems (GIS) technologies and how they are being used to solve issues dealing with safety, environment, efficiency, and economic impact of financial markets around the world.  In addition, Los Angeles County uses maps for planning, tracking, responding, analyzing, comparing, routing, visualizing, to understanding our work and constituents.

Come learn more at this year's GIS Day!  DPSS will be part of this fantastic event, along with other departmental GIS groups.  Come see how County managers are strategically using GIS to make informed decisions that support productivity in their departments.  Find out how County GIS groups cooperate to benefit all.  

This year's event marks its eleventh anniversary and the County's second year of participation.  It will feature speeches by County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, County Chief Executive Officer Bill Fujioka, booths showcasing departmental GIS projects, GIS demonstrations, a series of short presentations, a map gallery and special games and activities.

See you there!
