Geographical information system or GIS is a system that creates, stores, maps and analyzes the real world/spatial/ geographical data and gives us a spatial understanding of the data that can aid in several important scenarios be it analytical and decision making.
As a part of the GIS community and being fellow GIS enthusiasts we will be celebrating International GIS day 2021 dated 17th November 2021.
We will be conducting an exciting series of events spread across the whole week starting from 15th November till 19th November.
With this we aim at exchanging knowledge about GIS, highlighting its importance and applications through various fun and interactive events.
