We’re celebrating (again!) at iFormBuilder headquarters… GIS technology is a tool helping us understand our environment. It allows NGOs, Hazard Recovery Teams, Scientists, Engineers and others to map out important data and location, and will become more important as time goes on.
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.
The first formal GIS Day took place in 1999. Esri president and co-founder Jack Dangermond credits Ralph Nader with being the person who inspired the creation of GIS Day. He considered GIS Day a good initiative for people to learn about geography and the uses of GIS. He wanted GIS Day to be a grassroots effort and open to everyone to participate.
Here’s a quick overview from the GIS Day YouTube channel
iFormBuilder is taking great strides to utilize the power of GIS, through partnerships with Esri and others across the globe– stay tuned throughout the day, as we celebrate GIS Day!
