SARASOTA COUNTY – See the world in a whole new way as Sarasota County hosts GIS Day from 2-7 p.m. Nov. 16 at Gulf Gate Public Library in Sarasota.
The free event, held in conjunction with Geography Awareness Week and events in more than 80 countries around the world, provides a forum for users of geographic information system (GIS) technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society.
The local event, which includes interactive demonstrations, is open to the public, and no registration is required. Attendees are invited to come out and see how GIS technology is being used locally for public safety, demographics, water resource management and more. Families can also check out an outdoor kid zone where younger schoolchildren can learn about sea turtles, habitat maps and local geography. The event will also feature prizes, raffles and giveaways.
