MAC-URISA in AC: Betting on GIS!

OK, so "Betting on GIS!" is my own name for the meeting since it is in Atlantic City. Maybe "Ante up for geospatial" would have been better. In any case, you should go so you can convince them to find better bad names for next year.

On behalf of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of URISA (MAC URISA) we invite you to attend our 16th regional GIS conference.  This year’s event, MAC URISA 2012, will take place on October 22, 23, and 24 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  Ours is the largest GIS conference in the region and provides you opportunities to learn, network, and achieve continuing education credits.  Our exhibit hall will showcase the premier technologies and services available today.

Attached is a detailed list of speakers and topics we are offering at this year’s conference.  Our chapter has a long reputation of providing high quality continuing education at an affordable price.  As you review this year’s program you’ll see we continue this tradition by offering in depth sessions focused on parcel mapping, surveying, planning, asset management, natural resources, and technology.  In addition we will have hands on technology labs and showcases focused on the newest tools and applications available today.

Please visit our conference website www.macurisa.org/2012 and register.  To maximize your educational value, sign up for one of our six Pre-Conference Workshops.   The workshops offer eight hours of CEUs and are specifically geared to our region in the following areas:

                LiDAR:  Mid-Atlantic Availability, Useful Applications, and Hands-On Practice
                Cloud Based Mapping Applications
                Measuring NJ, People, Places, and our Economy (presented by the Census Bureau)
                Advanced GPS
                Land Record Intergration with GIS/CAMA
                An Overview of Open Source GIS Software (a URISA Certified Workshop)

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at MAC URISA 2012!
