Each November, Purdue Libraries hosts a GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Day celebration as a local component of the greater international event. “GIS,” typically defined, is a collection of software applications, hardware devices such as GPS receivers and data sensors, and various processes that take maps and statistical data and put them together in a digital mapping environment in order to ask questions of it all collectively.

The event typically features poster and presentation sessions, but each year might include a number of other activities, including workshops, videoconferences, and seminars. Each year, all participants are given the option of submitting their content to this archive. Submission is voluntary, which means this is not necessarily a full archive of our GIS Day celebration.
