Join us to learn more about GIS in Savannah…

GIS Day Savannah is an annual event to introduce GIS technology and other geospatial sciences to our local school children and promote the capabilities and use of GIS to the general business community. GIS Day is celebrated internationally as part of National Geographic’s International Geography Week. SAGIS and the sponsors of this event are proud to invite Chatham County middle school students to the morning program, with area business owners, staff, GIS users, and local citizens invited to attend the afternoon session.  Students and citizens will have the chance to see GIS in action in our community.  This year marks  Savannah’s eighth GIS Day event, so please join with us in the celebration and become part of this annual tradition:
