GIS is not for GIS specialists/experts anymore; everybody works with GIS even though they are not aware of it. Do not believe it!? If you have smart phone, you are already using GIS. Your smartphone records your location (location is the key part of GIS) regularly; you use Maps app on your iPhone to find place to look for an address or hang out with your family and friends; you use many more apps on your iPhone to get location-based information; and most importantly you use GPS to find your route toward an address you've never been before. In all of those case (among many more) you are using GIS, so why not celebrate it!?
GIS Day provides an international forum for users of geographic information systems (GIS) technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society. For more information about GIS Day go to: http://www.gisday.com.
