      GIS Day is primarily an educational event that encourages geographic information systems (GIS) users and vendors to build awareness and showcase real-world applications of GIS to schools, businesses and the general public.  It is a global event celebrated during Geography Awareness Week – a geographic literacy initiative sponsored by the National Geographic Society.
