Geography Awareness Week has been held the third week of November since 1987. The purpose of Geography Awareness Week is to promote geographic education in schools and among the public. Each year Geography Awareness Week has a specific theme; this year that theme is North America. Geography Awareness Week was established in 1987, U.S. President Ronald Reagan signed legislation that established the third week in November as Geography Awareness Week. Geography Awareness Week is sponsored by the National Geographic Society and other geographic organizations at the national, state, and local level.

GIS Day is an outgrowth of Geography Awareness Week. GIS Day is held on the Wednesday of Geography Awareness Week and seeks to encourage Geographic Information Systems (GIS) users and vendors to open their doors to schools, businesses, and the general public to showcase real-world applications of this important technology.
