There will be peer presentations on all the great GIS and technology innovations happening in the Portland area. Food and beverages will be provided by Esri and we will have a tour of their new R&D office digs in downtown Portland that just opened up for operation. Look forward to seeing you all there!

ORURISA Portland Area GIS Users Group - PAGIS
The Portland Area GIS Users Group (PAGIS) provides a forum for GIS professionals, students, and others interested in GIS to meet, share ideas, view demonstrations, and participate in technical discussions. We are a network of people in the GIS community of the greater Portland area and believe that we can all learn from each other and improve our job performance. The User Group provides a means and opportunity for users to get to know one another and exchange information and expertise. Anyone with an interest in GIS can attend meetings -- or present.
