GIS Day Events

Indiana GIS Day and Conference Set for November 5, 2013

Explore the innovative ways GIS is used to improve government operations.  GIS has the unique capability to help explain large amounts of information via maps and graphics using location information.  Cross-agency applications appear seamless when data is merged into a GIS.  See and learn the many new avenues for using this increasingly important technology.
