The University of Notre Dame’s Center for Research Computing will host a half-day workshop to explore Geographic Information System (GIS) software on Nov. 21 (Friday). Presentations for GIS Day 2008 will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Carey Auditorium of the Hesburgh Library and will be followed by a reception and poster presentations from 4 to 5 p.m.

GIS software represents features on the earth as digital and spatial data that can be analyzed to reveal patterns and highlight spatial connections not readily apparent. GIS Day will bring together researchers, local government agencies and businesses in hopes of building a community of interest around the display and manipulation of geospatial data.

Registration for the event is free, and can be completed on the Web at http://crc.nd.edu/registration/gis.shtml . More information is available at http://crc.nd.edu/ .
