GIS Day 2019 in Faculty of Civil Engineering

GIS day is a worldwide event that celebrates the technology of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Ralph Nader inspired GIS Day, as a day for geography awareness. But it was actually the National Geographic Society, Association of American Geographers (AAG) and Esri, who really put the day into action on November 19, 1999. More specifically, it was the National Geographic Society who organized Geography Awareness Week each November in 1987. Since then within that week of geo-literacy, GIS Day typically occurs.
This year, it was scheduled, for the third consecutive year, hosted by the Department of Surveying and Geomatics Engineering, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Shahid Rajaee Teacher Training University. See, for more details about GIS Day.
