Better understanding and more informed decisions; that is what Geographic Information Systems (GIS) bring to your organization. GIS allows you to integrate and analyze data, collaborate across government, and engage with citizens across the nation and around the world. GIS lets us continuously measure our environment, perform spatial analysis in real-time, and create understanding so we can take action every day.
Join us, as we explore a world of geographic possibilities; learning from accomplished government and technology leaders who will share ideas and knowledge that lead us all to improved efficiencies, accomplished missions, and science-based decision making. Walk away inspired and ready to modernize your work with GIS.
