Innovative Applications of Esri GIS Technology Poster Competition
For more information, and for the 5 categories that will serve as criteria, see:
Cash prizes will be awarded, but even more importantly, this is an opportunity for students and colleagues to showcase the innovative things they are doing with Esri GIS technology to help understand and solve the most pressing local-to-global problems of our time.

Please join ORURISA's Emerging Professionals (formerly Young Professionals) new board in a social gathering. This is a great time to meet the new board members of the newly reawakened Emerging Professionals and meet other emerging GIS professionals. We will be talking about potential opportunities such as workshops, mentoring, internships, and networking. The event is free and everyone is welcome, however, you have to bring one of your own bad maps to share and have a fun critique!

Modernizing the National Spatial Reference System in 2022
Aug 31, 2018 1:00 PM EDT
In 2022, the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) will replace all components of the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS), including NAD 83 and NAVD 88, with a new system that is geocentric, time-dependent and not reliant upon passive control. Every survey, map or geolocation created today will be incompatible with the new system by as much as 4 meters, depending on where in the United States you are working. This misalignment could apply to every latitude and/or longitude and/or height in your work.
In order to assist users in understanding and adapting to the new system, two technical reports were released by NGS in 2017, under the title “Blueprint for 2022”, with a third, companion report in the works. The first two reports provide the scientific and definitional aspects of four new time-dependent terrestrial reference frames and their companion “geopotential datum” (replacing and expanding upon the historic concept of a “vertical datum”). The third report will focus on the user community and how it can work within this new paradigm of time-dependent geodetic control.
This talk will focus on all of the changes to expect in the future and ways that all geospatial professionals can adapt and thrive in the new system.
Registration is now open for the annual Oregon Census Data Users Conferences on Wednesday, September 12th in Salem and Thursday, September 13th in Portland.
There will be plenty of capacity in both Portland and Salem, so you are welcome to attend part or all of the day, depending on your schedule and interests. You can find a rough agenda at https://www.pdx.edu/prc/events and below. More details and specific times will be added at that link.

Morning: 9:00 am-noon. Rural issues and New Data Tools.

Come join us if you are you interested in… · LiDAR · GIS · UAV · Photogrammetry · Aerial Imagery We welcome all active and inactive members, those who are curious about the society or anyone who simply wants to nerd out on geospatial science. Meet professionals, network and enjoy some Lucky Lab food and drink!
Tomorrow is the 2nd Wednesday of the month... meaning another SCGIS happy hour will take place.
We've had a few requests come in this month so

Maybe we'll hear a few stories from the SCGIS conference last month down in Monterey from those whom were fortunate enough to attend.
The Oregon Geographic Information Council will hold a series of listening sessions around the state over the next two months. The attached flyer contains a description of the sessions and information about the locations. Please feel free to forward this on to others you think might be interested. We will also be sending this announcement out to the Oregon URISA membership, and the lists for AOC, LOC, SDAO, and OSACA, as well as a few others.
These sessions will be aimed at the a wide audience, beyond geospatial practitioners, to include decision makers, executives, managers and front line personnel in all public bodies, as well as interested parties in academia, non-profits and the private sector.
