Legacy to Modern GIS: Solutions for Moving Forward

Virtual Meeting hosted by Zoom


Within the last five decades, GIS has evolved from a concept to a science. The phenomenal evolution of GIS from a rudimentary tool to a modern, powerful platform for understanding and planning our world is rich in its history. Today, GIS gives people the ability to create their own digital map layers to help solve real-world problems. GIS has also evolved into a means for data sharing and collaboration, inspiring a vision that is now rapidly becoming a reality—a continuous, overlapping, and interoperable GIS database of the world. With its movement to web and cloud computing, and integration with real-time information via the Internet of Things, GIS has become a platform relevant to almost every human endeavor—a nervous system of the planet. As our world faces problems from expanding population, loss of nature, and pollution, GIS will play an increasingly important role in how we understand and address these issues and provide a means for communicating solutions using the common language of mapping.

For the safety of all our attendees, this event will be hosted virtually using Zoom. Event registration is FREE! Registration closes on Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020 at 12pm. You will receive an email with a link to join the webinar by close of business on Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020.
