Houston's Largest GIS Event

The Houston Area GIS Day is the largest showcase of its kind on how Geographic Information Systems are used in the City of Houston and surrounding areas. The first GIS Day was held on November 2001 at the University of Houston-Downtown campus.

Business people, educators, students, and the general public will be given a free access pass to products and services that encompass the GIS program. Since its debut, this event has grown steadily to achieve a prominent position with public, private and governmental agencies in the GIS field. The Houston GIS Day has received national recognition at the Annual ESRI User Conference. Every year, the GIS Student's Day event alone brings in over 300 students and educators from the Houston Independent School District. We hope more schools will take part in this event. It is a good investment that gives students the opportunity and motivation to pick an area for their future career studies. Prizes will be awarded for school essay projects and GIS Mentorship Projects.
