Registration forms are due by 5pm on Friday, October 19, 2018.

The goal of GIS Day Savannah 2018 is to educate our local 8th grade students about how GIS is used every day in our community. Thanks to in-kind donations and support, the majority of your sponsorship will go towards establishing GIS programs in area schools. At the same time, GIS Day provides the perfect opportunity for you to showcase your work, and a forum for teaching students about the significant contribution this exciting technology is making in their lives and communities.

Levels of Sponsorship include:
• Platinum Sponsorship for $2500
• Scholarship or Gold Sponsorship for $1000
• Silver Sponsorship for $500
• Friends of GIS Day for $150
• Government and non-profit organizations that participate in the event are asked to submit a $50 donation to cover the cost of booth supplies and setup.

All Sponsors will receive:
• Booth Space including 8’ x 30” table and 2 chairs
• Organization logo and website listed on the GIS Day Savannah website
• Organization name listed in marketing materials
• Morning refreshments & lunch

GIS Gallery – PARTICIPATION REQUESTED
Students always spend more time at booths that have submitted a scavenger hunt question. We ask that each sponsor submit a map to be shown in the GIS Day Map Gallery and submit at least one question for the scavenger hunt to be answered by the students visiting your booth.

Sample questions from previous years:

Booth:  Pictometry

  • What term does Pictometry use to describe its 40-45 degree aerial image view?

Map: Potential Community Garden Sites

  • What District and Alderman have the best opportunity for a community garden?

Booth:  Savannah State University

  • What degree programs use GIS at Savannah State?

Scavenger hunt question and maps must be submitted with your registration by October 19, 2018. For assistance developing an appropriately themed scavenger hunt question, please email Ashley Marshall (marshalla@thempc.org) and the 2018 GIS Day Committee will be happy to help.
