GIS Day is an annual event held in Honnold/Mudd Library. Its purpose is to help build awareness of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and the importance of spatial awareness. GIS is a collection of computer hardware, software, and geographic data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. Examples include USGS Live Earthquake Mashup at http://www.oe-files.de/gmaps/usgseq.html and sigalert.com at http://www.sigalert.com/
