Also this year, the GIScience Group of the Institute of Geography will participate in the International GIS Day. In a hybrid event, there will be presentations on the application of GIS/geodata in research and practice addressing the overall topic of “Sustainability”. The GIS Day will include the following program items:

  • 14:00-15:00: presentations on applications of geodata at the Bavarian State Office for the Environment and in natural hazard research (German)
  • 15:00-16:00 presentations by students of the master program Geoinformatics (German)
  • 16:00-17:15 partners of the EC2U Alliance will present insight into their research on “Sustainable Cities and Communities” (English)
  • 17:15-18:00 opportunity for further exchange among participants and speakers

GIS (Geographic Information System) is a scientific framework for gathering, analyzing, and visualizing geographic data for making better decisions. On the International GIS Day, people can learn about geography and real-world applications of GIS that make a difference in society, and get an inspiration to discover and use GIS.

Registration for participation is required. 50 participants will be admitted on site to meet the 3-G rule (vaccinated, recovered, tested). Seats will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Notification of admission as well as the access data for the Zoom conference will be sent by email.
