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

Huge thank you to the conference committee (led by John Nolte, Ashley Hitt, and Judy Colby-George), our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, instructors and all of the participants who collectively made #GISPro2019 a memorable and valuable conference. 

We cannot thank Louisiana URISA enough for their enthusiasm and commitment to making #GISPro2019 an incredible event. We'll come back anytime you want us!!! Truly!

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!
