"For me, it is the opportunity to network with people who use GIS in a wide range of industries and disciplines, and to discover unique applications of GIS in this range of disciplines that I might not have known about otherwise. Not only does GIS-Pro host GIS practitioners from a wide range of disciplines, but it's also home to a healthy discussion of open-source GIS alternatives and how they're used to assist with natural resource management, urban planning, environmental science, and everything in between. Not to mention, geographers know where it's at and know how to have a good time. These are good people, and that's a reason to go in its own right!" - Andy Hayslip, Environmental Specialist/GIS Analyst, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
