Georgia URISA 2014 Conference

May 15, 2014 | GA URISA, Georgia, GITA

I was sitting around the other day and realized something – My most attended conference is this one I think. This will be my 5th one and I think that either edges out TNGIC or ties it. Which is sorta funny since I’m actually getting tired of conferences in general.

So Georgia URISA holds a conference every two years. This year (as in 2010) I’ll be representing Midsouth ASPRS and GA URISA. It’s a good conference and I don’t say that often. It’s statewide….and we’ve even had people coming down from Canada for this….so nationwide. I’m going, I’m teaching, and I’m presenting.

I’m actually teaching an OSM workshop. I wrote one for URISA which is getting quite a bit of traction. This one is a bit different in that I may have 40ish slides to cover the whole day. We’re going to work, map, and go out and see how OSM works. I’m going to try at the last part of the day to show how you can leverage this data in your GIS operations. I’ve got a complete dataset for the county where the conference will be held….and we will at the end of the day compare and contrast with OSM.

So from the email bag – please attend:

Georgia URISA, ASPRS Mid South, SAMSOG and GITA Southeast are joining together again for the Georgia Geospatial Conference of 2014 to be held October 6th-8th at the Classic Center in downtown Athens.

 

Participants are welcome from federal, state, local governments; academic; private sector; non-profit and international organizations.

 

If you are a practitioner, student, or otherwise interested, in the fields of geographic information systems or surveying, please make plans to attend the largest geospatial conference in Georgia.  For three days, you will have the chance to network with peers, share projects and ideas, and learn.  On October 6th, there will be pre-conference workshops.  On October 7th and 8th, you will hear from leaders in the GIS and Surveying fields with practitioners sharing papers and presentations.  On Tuesday night we will have a social.  On Tuesday, we are also having an afternoon session devoted to future leaders in the GIS field: students.
