On Wednesday November 14, 2012, thousands of users around the world are expected to participate in hundreds of GIS Day events—the annual salute to geospatial technology and its power to transform and improve lives. If you’re interested in hosting an event, get started by visiting the new and improved GIS Day website. It is packed with features that will get people inspired about GIS Day 2012 and make finding, developing, and hosting events easier and more fun than ever. Here are some of the enhancements:
• An interactive map shows GIS Day events around the globe. Users can register their event to promote it on the map. Those who are interested in attending or volunteering at an event can easily find a nearby GIS Day event.
• An updatedresources page provides hosts with the items they need to promote events, including the GIS Day logo, customizable marketing files, and a PowerPoint template, as well as interactive map games, videos, and e-books.
• A new, streamlined registration form offers event hosts a quick and simple registration experience, plus all registered events will receive complimentary GIS Day giveaways, resources support, and a place on the Events Map.
• A Flickr photo stream depicts successful past events with pictures submitted by hosts around the world.
