GIS Day brings together users of the software from private industries, educational institutions, government agencies, and nonprofits to build a stronger understanding of the world we live in through the demonstration of real-world applications. Every day, GIS software is making a positive difference across our planet, benefiting the lives of millions of people. The technology, which provides location intelligence and analytics, allows users to gain deeper insights into data, solve problems, and make smarter decisions about land use, energy, water, natural hazards, biodiversity, climate, and other key issues of the twenty-first century.

"We are excited to recognize all the many organizations and individuals that contribute to the GIS community," said Jack Dangermond, Esri founder and president. "With GIS, they are meeting challenges ranging from natural disaster management to increasing supply chain efficiency. We are also proud to join with AAG in inspiring a new generation of GIS professionals with the science of geography and maps."

While GIS Day is observed on one day in November each year, Esri encourages people to find out more about GIS throughout the year via  Esri Press books, the company's  massive open online course (MOOC) program, training courses through your local university or community college, and  gisday.com. And now, with the launch of Geography.com, those new to location intelligence can begin to explore the ways that mapping serves as a fundamental language for understanding the world.
