From the Young Professionals making amazing contributions to our esteemed URISA Past Presidents, the conversations and contributions made this conference one to remember!
URISA emanated from conferences held from 1963 through 1966. These events were known as the Annual Conference on Urban Planning Information Systems and Programs. URISA was formed in 1966 and the first URISA conference was held in 1967. We convened in Portland to celebrate the 50th annual conference!
The conference program was packed with sessions... thanks to the speakers and the conference program committee for making it difficult to choose between all of the educational options!
URISA was honored to welcome our distinguished keynote speakers for GIS-Pro 2012.
