Hosted by the State Geographic Information Council and the Office of Geographic Information.

Over 50 federal, state, local, and private organizations will be on hand to showcase their Geographic Information System (GIS) work and the latest advancements in GIS technology. At 10 AM, attendees will also have the opportunity to hear from Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb who will likely speak on the importance of GIS technology and how it is being used in every day applications.

Mike Sharp, State GIS Coordinator says GIS technology impacts people's daily lives whether they realize it or not. "If you have a GPS system in your vehicle, on your cell phone or have created a map on a computer program to get somewhere you have already used a Geographic Information System (GIS) and may not have even known it," said Sharp. GIS technology as "any system for capturing, storing, analyzing and managing data and associated attributes which are spatially referenced to Earth,” Sharp explained.

GIS Day at the Capitol provides the lawmakers and the public the opportunity to see the importance of GIS technology and how it impacts the daily lives of all Oklahomans.
