Local Event for National GIS Day


The Putnam County Geographical Information System Council will be hosting a GIS Day event on Wednesday, to explain and show new technologies in geographical mapping.

COOKEVILLE – On Wednesday November 20th, from 10am-3pm, the public will have a rare chance to see and interact with numerous GIS (Geographical Information System) technologies. The event, hosted by the Putnam County GIS Council, will display and demonstrate several of the mapping systems used in Cookeville and Putnam County.

“We want people to be able to see what we see on the 911 maps, the utilities maps, and the maps that are available to them on the internet,” stated GIS Council chairman Randy Porter. “We have so many interesting things that our mapping applications can do, and we want everyone to have a chance to see and interact with them. We are very progressive and fortunate with all the capabilities we have here in our area,” continued Porter.

The event is being hosted at the main branch of the Putnam County Library, located at 50 E. Broad Street in Cookeville (connected to Dogwood Park). Organizations who plan to be part of the event are the Cookeville Planning Department, Putnam County E-911, Cookeville Electric Department, Cookeville Police Department, Tennessee Tech University, and more.
