GIS Day 2020
Please join us in celebrating GIS Day at Clemson University on Wednesday, November 18, 2020! 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.
We are very excited to have as our keynote speaker this year Ms. Veronica Moore, GISP, GIS Manager at the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC).
GIS Day at Clemson features amazing presentations from GIS professionals and faculty across the Southeast. Apart from amazing, inspiring talks, there will also be online contests and many prizes to give away among our attendees. Check out our GIS Day Contests page for details.
