CGA Recognizes How Geographic Information System Technology Makes an Impact
Marshalltown, Iowa—November 17, 2020—CGA will celebrate GIS Day on Wednesday, November 18, 2020. While global circumstances require GIS Day to be largely virtual this year, CGA will celebrate innovative applications of geographic information system (GIS) technology in analysis, visualization, gaining insights into geospatial data, and thought leadership in the field of engineering and land surveying.
Over 20 years ago, Jack Dangermond, the founder and president of Esri, envisioned people collaborating and sharing how GIS affects everyone. This led to the establishment of GIS Day, which was first observed in 1999. The explosion of geospatial technology since then has expanded that idea into a global event that shows how geography and the real-world applications of GIS are making a difference in business, government, and society. It’s a chance for organizations to share their accomplishments and inspire others to discover and use GIS.
CGA officially launched their GIS program in January 2020 with the addition of Micah Cutler, GISP, to the team. Since this launch, the GIS program has assisted numerous Iowa municipalities with utility mapping, data organization, and more.
“GIS Day is a wonderful opportunity for professionals from around the world to get together to share the amazing things they are doing,” said Dangermond. “This year, more than ever before, the work of GIS has helped the world better understand and mitigate the impacts of COVID-19. Organizations across the globe are taking part in grassroots events that help celebrate geospatial science and how it impacts the real world for good. Our users should be proud of the work they do, which GIS Day is meant to showcase.”
