Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Day

November 2, 2012 @ 8:30 am – 12:30 pm

Location: W.R. Timken Center. Stark State College will host the seventh annual free Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Day to showcase this mapping tool from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 2. in the W.R. Timken Center, 6200 Frank Ave. NW in Jackson Township.

The computer-based system takes information from a database about a location, such as streets, buildings, parcels, water features, terrain and more and turns it into visual layers – contemporary maps.
