GIS Day 2016

Please join us in celebrating GIS Day at Clemson University! This event is the culmination of the work done by faculty, researchers, and GIS professionals in the past year.

This is a great opportunity for the GIS community around Clemson to connect with fellow professionals, inspire others with their fantastic work, and pique the interest of the general public when it comes to GIS and its possible real-world applications.



GIS Day features amazing presentations from faculty and GIS professionals across the region. There will also be food and beverages, contests and prizes, and a sandbox and games for children of all ages, so bring your kids along for the fun!

Our keynote speaker is Greg Dobson, Director of Geospatial Technology at the         National Environmental Modeling and Analysis Center (NEMAC) at the                     University of North Carolina in Asheville.

As Director of Geospatial Technology, Mr. Dobson oversees                 all of NEMAC's GIS activities, research, mapping, and development.
