GISDay_2023

The City of Opelika will hold a GIS Day celebration on November 17, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at Boykin Community Center Auditorium in Auburn with partners City of Auburn, Auburn University, and Lee County Mapping & GIS. The event will highlight innovative applications into geospatial data and leadership in the field of local government and academic research. The event is open to the community. 

GIS Day was first observed in 1999 by Jack Dangermond, the founder and president of the GIS software company Esri. The explosion of geospatial technology since then has expanded that idea into a global event that shows how geography and the real-world applications of GIS are making a difference in business, government, and society. The day is a chance for organizations to share their accomplishments and inspire others to discover and use GIS. 

“We are thrilled to share this technology with the community,” said James Bush, the City of Opelika’s Geographic Information Officer. “GIS Day is the perfect day to showcase how each of our organizations uses this technology to serve citizens.”

The City of Opelika and the City of Auburn have received awards recognizing their uses of GIS technology at the state and national level. They will be one of many organizations hosting in-person and virtual gatherings worldwide that will celebrate the impactful work of GIS professionals.
