Come join VTA staff to celebrate international GIS (geographic information system) Day. This event is open to members of the public or technical professionals with an interest in geospatial and transportation data.  Learn about the many ways GIS can provide solutions for YOUR project needs.  Including public outreach and crowdsourcing, work assignments, and visualizing data via dashboards.

There will be lightning talks from VTA staff, interactive GIS stations, aerial photo challenge, prizes, and refreshments.  This year’s event is sponsored by ESRI, NearMap, and Latitude Geographics.
