GIS Day activities

Geographic information systems (GIS) are used to make digital maps. We use GIS Day to celebrate the many exciting and interesting ways that City staff uses GIS in their jobs.

We have GIS activities and demonstrations planned that everyone will enjoy regardless of how much you know about GIS. You’ll have a chance to

  • learn about GIS
  • meet City staff
  • see how we use GIS for City operations
