Houston, Texas -Don’t miss this year’s Houston Area’s GDC GIS Day 2007 Nov. 15-16, 2007 hosted at the University of Houston - Central Campus, MD Anderson Library.

GIS stands for Geographic Information System, a method of managing, analyzing, and displaying geographic information on easily understood computer-generated maps. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) lets you see, explore, and analyze data by location, revealing hidden patterns, relationships and trends that are not readily apparent. GIS is utilized locally by 911, the City of Houston, Harris County, METRO and many other agencies for various uses.

Keynote Speaker Nov. 15, 2007 is Dr. Gordon Wells, presenting “Geospatial Technologies for Disaster Response: GIS, GPS and Satellite Remote Sensing”. Dr. Wells serves as the Principal Investigator for the NASA-funded Mid-American Geospatial Information Center located at the University of Texas at Austin Center for Space Research.

Keynote Speaker Nov. 16, 2007 is Dr John Lienhard. Linehard is the author and voice of over 2000 episodes of “The Engines of Our Ingenuity”, a daily public radio series about machines and the people who created him. Dr. Lienhard is the MD Anderson Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering, and of History, at the University of Houston, where he has taught since 1980.

Houston Area GDC GIS Day 2007 is the largest showcase of how Geographic Information Systems are used in the City of Houston and surrounding areas. For two days, business people, educators, students, and the general public are given a free access pass to products and services that encompass GIS. Since its debut 5 years ago, this event has grown steadily, achieving a prominent position in the field of GIS with the public, private and governmental agencies.

In 2006, the Students Day event alone brought in over 350 students and educators from the Houston Independent School District. Prizes were awarded for GIS Mentorship Projects and essay projects.
