GIS Day 2010 will take place on November 17. GIS Day is an international event and is part of the National Geographic Society's Geography Awareness Week, which seeks to geographic awareness in schools and among the public. From the GIS Day site: "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." Listings of events and more information can be found on the GIS Day 2010 site.
This year, the Geospatial Innovation Facility (GIF) and the Bay Area Automated Mapping Association (BAAMA) are hosting an event, with support from the American Society for Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing (ASPRS): NorCal Region: Discovering the World Through GIS. Registration is free, but the GIF requests attendees register in order to know how many people to expect. More information is available on the GIF's GIS Day site.
