GIS Day 2017 – Thank you!

On behalf of the GIS Day Savannah Committee, we would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all sponsors, volunteers, students, and educators who made our 11th annual GIS Day event the best and most engaging yet! We had a record number of new and returning sponsors, an amazing turnout in our student poster competition, amazing volunteers, and some fantastic groups of bright 8th grade students. None of this would be possible without the hard work and dedication of every person involved, year after year – together, we are proud to put young geographers on the map!

We will see you all next year on November 21st for GIS Day 2018!

Gearing up for GIS Day 2017!

Happy spring to all students, teachers, sponsors, and GIS enthusiasts! The GIS Day Savannah Committee is excited to announce that Savannah’s 11th annual GIS Day event will be held on Wednesday, November 15th, 2017 at Savannah State University. The committee has been hard at work planning and revamping to make our 11th event the best one yet. We are excited to share new and innovative ways to engage students and citizens in the power of GIS. In the meantime, we invite you to start thinking about becoming a sponsor or submitting a project to our student competition. Happy exploring – we’ll see you all in November!
