2016 DDAA GIS Users Conference

"Utilizing Your Resources to Better Serve Your Region"

April 24, 2016  -  Asheville, NC

As GIS professionals in often rural areas, we have skills and access to tools that many do not know about nor how they can be benefitted. By looking for different ways we can use these tools, expertise, and information, we can often provide benefits people did not know existed, or solve previously unsolvable problems. The presentations at this User's Group are geared toward this idea of using GIS, and the other resources of your organization, to accomplish things that would otherwise be overly onerous or just unattainable.
Examples of the presentations are:
• Free Open Source Web GIS Solutions
• Using ArcGIS Online and the Local Government Information Model to Serve a Multi-level User Base
• Activity Density and the Data You Can Generate from Jobs and Population
Following the GIS User Group Conference, the DDAA 4th Annual Professional Development Conference will begin at the same location.  We invite you to stay and take time to improve yourself at this annual conference. The DDAA is providing a discounted rate for all GIS User Group Conference attendees that choose to attend the Professional Development Conference.

So whether you want to attain skills and knowledge for personal development or career advancement, extend your stay and join us for real-world executive and employee development sessions, networking and more in Asheville, North Carolina.
