GIS Day is a global event originally started by National Geographic and ESRI (The leading vendor in GIS software) and associates in 1998. It's held the third Wednesday of each November, during Geography Awareness Week, and is focused on educating people around the world about GIS technologies and their daily applications. It is a part of the larger "Geography Awareness Week" that was started by the National Geographic Society in 1987.

UC Davis has a long history of hosting various events on GIS day that include guest speakers, poster exhibits, map collection tours and demonstrations of technology.
