Temple University GIS Day, Wednesday, November 16, 2016
Keynote presentation by Dr. Paul Torrens (Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at New York University).
Temple University is pleased to announce that we will once again be hosting geographic information systems (GIS) Day for 2016. GIS Day provides an international forum for users of geographic information systems (GIS) technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society.
GIS links locations (where) to information (what), allowing us to question, map, analyze and interpret data and better understand spatial relationships, trends and patterns. GIS applications are increasingly essential to science, industry and government and are quickly becoming important in everyday life for people and communities.
This FREE EVENT will include lightning talks by many groups at Temple University and around Philadelphia on how GIS is used to make a difference, an employment workshop featuring Temple alumni working in the GIS field, and a keynote presentation by Dr. Paul Torrens on “Simulating Streetscapes.”
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Students, educators, researchers, and professionals interested in learning more about GIS and how it is making a difference in our lives and communities. To register for this free event click here.
