Thank you for your feedback! Here's one quote that echoed the sentiments of many:
“It’s a great way to see what others
are doing around the state.”
24th Annual New York State GIS Conference
October 6-7, 2008
Syracuse-Liverpool - Exit 37, 441 Electronics Parkway, Liverpool, NY 13088
Other aspects of the Conference rated highly: Our keynote selections of the past two conferences were “big names” of importance and interest. In 2006, we had Talbot Brooks on Hurricane Katrina and Ron Langhelm, FEMA, on emergency management. In 2007, Joe Berry gave us GIS and Technical Oz - A Discussion of the History, Driving Forces and Future Directions Guiding the Evolution/Revolution of Geotechnology.
The traditional State of the State presentation was especially appreciated this year to learn about activities around the state and get the latest on technology and applications used in a wide variety of projects.
Why do people choose to attend the NYS GIS conference year after year?
The conference has a long standing tradition of providing attendees with an opportunity to meet fellow New Yorkers active in the GIS field, exchange information and real experiences, and seek solutions to your geographic data management needs. Professional networking opportunities help you develop a network of fellow GIS users which will continue through the years.
