|Geography hosting North Dakota GIS Users Conference|
The department of Geography is hosting the North Dakota Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Users Conference, Nov. 2-4, at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks. The conference brings together GIS users from federal, state, local, and tribal government agencies, as well as from academia and the private sector. This year's meeting is being held in conjunction with RGIS: The National Consortium for Rural Geospatial Innovations in America. The RGIS-Great Plains site is the Regional Weather Information Center (RWIC) at UND. The GIS conference, which has never before been held outside of Bismarck, includes presentations, workshops, and exhibits about GIS, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and remote sensing. This year will set records in number of exhibitors (25 or more), presentations (50), and sponsors (21). For more information and to register, see http://www.und.nodak.edu/org/urg/ .
