GIS Day is a global event that celebrates geographic information systems (GIS) technology.  Its goal is to make people aware of this innovative technology that utilizes geography to bring numerous benefits to the world and to highlight the important contributions GIS is making in the fields of science, technology, information, and the humanities.

GIS Day 2017 at DePauw was celebrated on November 15 at the Julian Science and Math Center.  DePauw’s event showcased student, faculty, and staff GIS projects and introduced GIS concepts via posters, multimedia displays, and interactive activities.

In the picture below I’m playing in the sand.  The “sandbox” is actually an augmented reality sandbox, whereby users can  shape the sand into landforms, and the colored topographic map automatically readjusts to reflect those changes in surface elevations.
