A look back at 2009

The 2009 New York State GIS Conference on Oct. 25-27, 2009 was held in Lake Placid.

As one 2009 NYS GIS exhibitor stated...

“Thanks (to you and the entire supporting cast) for your efforts in pulling together the conference. It was, as usual, a great event for us and I’m grateful for the opportunity to exhibit, present, and network with the many fine professionals in our industry.

I’ll look forward to seeing you in Saratoga Springs next year, if not before.”

2010 New York State Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Conference

Sunday-Tuesday, October 24-26, 2010

Expect the best—Quality Presentations, Outstanding Posters, and real solutions from our exhibitors!

The NYS GIS 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 experience, and seek solutions to your geographic data management needs.

GIS Ablaze

For the first time ever, Platinum and Gold Sponsors were given the opportunity to stand center stage and impart their wisdom in a power-packed presentation of GIS knowledge, and tidbits of “Who knew you could do that with geospatial information?” in our newly launched “GIS Ablaze” Ignite Sessions. These 5-minute sessions were held during lunch on Monday and attendees had the opportunity to vote on a favorite. The winning Sponsor earned an exclusive highlight of their session on the NYS GIS Conference website.

The goal was to provide entertaining presentations that imparted new knowledge to conference attendees.  Each presenter gave a 5 minute visually oriented presentation in which each slide advanced automatically every 15 seconds.  The presenter had to know their material or missed the opportunity to comment on the slide as they rapidly advanced.  The session was a lot of fun and provided a high impact message for the attendees.
