What is GIS Day?
GIS Day 2012 will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012, as part of the National Geographic Society's Geography Awareness Week GIS Day is a grassroots event that formalizes the practice of geographic information system (GIS) users and vendors opening their doors to schools, businesses, and the general public to showcase real-world applications of this important technology.

What is GIS?
GIS stands for Geographic Information Systems. It is a computer-based tool used to map and analyze objects and events. It combines the power of a database with the visualization capabilities offered by maps. This helps analysts discover relationships between and among sets of computer-readable, geographically referenced data that they could not see or understand easily without the aid of this technology. More than half a million people in the world use GIS to solve problems in areas such as environmental protection, pollution, health care, land use, asset deployment and routing, natural resources, conservation, business efficiency, education and social inequities
