Translated from the original post in French: “ GISDay 2021, activités au Québec pour la Journée SIG 2021″.
This year, the GIS Day will be officially held on November 17, 2021, an event always placed on the 3rd Wednesday of November.
Around the world, GIS Day is an opportunity to promote geomatics and raise awareness of the importance of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), geospatial data and applications. GIS Day is an educational event created in 1999 and promoted by software company Esri. Hundreds of events and activities are taking place around the world, and many are listed on the GISDay website.
This international celebration of GIS technologies has also been celebrated in Quebec for several years. Here are the activities that will take place across the province.
