November 15, 2023. On November 15, 2023, International Geographic Information Systems Day has been celebrated since 1999 on the third Wednesday in November.

The main purpose of this event is to spread modern geographical knowledge and increase awareness of GIS technologies.

On this day, developers and users of GIS technologies hold public events – exhibitions, seminars, presentations, open days – and demonstrate the capabilities of geoinformation systems.
