GIS Day 2009 - 3rd Annual ABTech/UNC Asheville GIS Day Event

This year we are moving the venue downtown to the Grove Arcade at the new “RENCI at UNC Asheville Engagement Center” (116 O’Henry St.). The Engagement Center features a large VizWall for displaying many GIS products simultaneously, the immersive GeoDome, a Touch-Screen display, and other technologies. With the move to the Engagement Center, we are downscaling the event somewhat.

Instead of the mini-conference style that we have offered in years past, this will be more of a “drop-in” type of event, with displays and exhibits set-up throughout the Center. In addition to the local GIS community, we also want to really target the general public this year and introduce them to GIS. Hopefully the downtown location will help facilitate that a little better.

Finally, instead of our usual Friday before GIS Day week time, which we do in order to not interfere with other events on actual GIS Day, our event this year will be on Thursday, Nov. 12th, from 11:00am to 1:00pm.
