GIS Day 2017

November 13, 2017

9:45 AM - 3:00 PM

Join UIC’s Urban Data Visualization Lab (UDVL) and the University Library on Monday, November 13th, 2017, from 9:45 am – 3:00 pm to celebrate GIS Day 2017 at the Richard J. Daley Library (1-470). Light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and visualization techniques allow us to organize, analyze, and communicate data. GIS Day is an opportunity to celebrate innovative projects that use these techniques, network with other users, and participate in hands-on applications of the technologies. Whether you are new to these technologies or an expert, GIS Day will give you the chance to see examples of data visualization work, stay informed on the latest developments, and think more about how these techniques can be applied to your classwork, to your research, and in your career.
Our presentations will cover a wide range of topics, including spatial data infrastructure, flood susceptibility indexes, mapping with robotic vehicles, food access, machine learning to detect neighborhood change, and suitability analysis for green infrastructure location and electric vehicles charging stations. Our demos will show how to use simplyAnalytics for spatial analyses, and R and Shiny to build apps.
Please visit our website to register and indicate your food preference.
