Since 1999, November 14th has been celebrated as GIS Day. The intent is as follows:
GIS Day provides an international forum for users of geographic information systems (GIS) technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society.
Activities are planned for locations around the world to recognize the day. To learn more, use the links below to view a short promotional video and/or visit the organizing website:

Comment: Although the event comes a few days after GIS Day, on November 16th, the University of Minnesota will be hosting an GIS event with an Emergency Services Sector spin to it. On that day, Nina Lam, Professor of Environmental Sciences at Louisiana State University will be presenting a free lecture entitled: From Disease to Disaster: Geospatial Analysis for Environmental Decision Making.
