The ISU GIS Facility and the Iowa Geographic Information Council hosted the 2012 GIS Day celebration this year on

Wednesday Nov. 14 from 9am - noon in Durham 206.

There was coffee, treats, presentations, and discussion on what is happening throughout the state and nation on current GIS topics (for those not able to attend in person, there is an archived recording of the presentations via Adobe Connect, see below). There was also a poster gallery for students and professionals outside Durham 206 in the hallway with prizes for winners voted on by GIS Day attendees. By voting for posters, attendees were entered into a raffle and many received great prizes donated by ESRI and the University Bookstore.
