Portland celebrates GIS Day!Read Now
On November 16, 2016, we held the 5th annual Portland GIS Day celebration. GIS day is part of Geography Awareness Week and has been celebrated in the geospatial community since 1999. This year, Portland GIS students and professionals were fully engaged with a presentation by Camille Westlake of Quantum Spatial, a speed networking challenge, and the opportunity to experience an augmented reality Topographic sand table, as well as a Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV or otherwise known as a drone). It was a great opportunity for GIS students to learn more about the field, meet local GIS professionals, and hear about work being done in the local GIS community. This event was made possible by our sponsors - Quantum Spatial, Portland Community College, URISA, ASPRS, DOGAMI, Metro, SCGIS, and OS-Geo, and is organized by Christina Friedle @ PCC & Madeline Steele @ TriMet. And thank you to Laurence Sarrazin @ Hand-Eye Supply for your help with the space.
Quantum Spatial's Corvallis, Oregon office is looking to hire a part time (~20 hr/week) temporary GIS intern to start sometime after the holidays.
The intern would work on a variety of work including creating maps from the Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) project we are working on for NOAA. This link has more details on the ESI program.
