GIS-Pro 2019 in New Orleans

GIS-Pro 2019 will take place September 28-October 2, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Following last year's event in Palm Springs (which raised nearly $4,000), URISA is pleased to announce another silent auction to benefit URISA’s GISCorps during GIS-Pro 2019 in New Orleans.

Since 2003, URISA’s GISCorps has coordinated short-term, volunteer-based GIS services to underprivileged communities. Projects vary based on the partner agency’s need and may involve any and all aspects of GIS including analysis, cartography, app development, needs assessments, technical workshops, etc.  Areas of service include humanitarian relief, disaster response, conservation, environmental quality, health and human services, GIS education, and expert crowdsourcing. GISCorps runs on volunteer energy and charitable contributions. 

The Silent Auction to support URISA’s GISCorps will take place on Monday and Tuesday, September 30 and October 1. If you would like to donate to the cause, please send an email to info@urisa.org or call (847) 824-6300 with a specific description of the item(s) and value. 

For information about the great work that URISA’s GISCorps does and how to get involved, please visit: http://www.giscorps.org/

URISA was thrilled to partner with the California Geographic Information Association (CGIA) and the four California URISA Chapters  - SoCal, NorCal, CentralCal and BayGEO - to present GIS-Pro & CalGIS 2018 in Palm Springs! Those five California-based geospatial organizations typically collaborate to present CalGIS each spring, an event that has a long history (nearly 25 years!) of educational and community-building excellence.  

Instead of two separate meetings, we collaborated on one geospatial super-event and it was fantastic!

Thank you to our Southeast Chapters (Florida, Georgia and Carolina URISA) for their support!





Thank you to our Canadian Chapters (URISA Ontario, URISA Alberta, and URISA British Columbia) for their support! 

URISA and the Northwest GIS User Group were proud to present GIS-Pro & NWGIS 2015, October 18-22, 2015 in Spokane, Washington, in cooperation with the Northern Rockies and Washington URISA Chapters. Nearly 450 GIS professionals attended the conference. There was a lot of interaction and discussion and excellent reviews of the educational program. A very positive conference experience!  What a fabulous conference!
