2019 North Dakota Geospatial Summit

10/22/2019
Bismarck Event Center

Save the Date! The 2019 North Dakota Geospatial Summit

October 22-23 at the Bismarck Event Center.

What began in 2001 as GIS Day became the North Dakota GIS Users Conference and that has now grown up to be the North Dakota Geospatial Summit, the one-of-a-kind statewide event.

You are cordially invited to attend the North Dakota Geospatial Summit as a presenter, sponsor, vendor, or attendee. Why? Here are some ideas:

 

  • Network with others in your profession - whether you are a casual user, a grizzled veteran, or anything between
  • Vendors and attendees can discuss the latest technology and systems
  • Attend presentations and workshops that you can apply to your job by:
  • Hearing new ideas
  • Learning new skills and honing existing ones
  • Brushing up on existing skills
  • Many applicable topics to select from, here are a few of the ones being planned:
  • UAS
  • Mobile GIS
  • ArcGIS Pro
  • Location Intelligence
  • Application Development
  • Cloud
  • Environmental
  • Cartography

 

As more details for the North Dakota Geospatial Summit are set in place they will be announced via email like this, on the ND GIS email list, on the ND GIS website, via ND GIS Twitter, and soon, the North Dakota Geospatial Summit website. In the near future, we'll be sending invitations to attend, to present, to provide a workshop, to provide sponsorship, to provide an exhibit, or some combination of all of these.
