Please mark your calendars for the NINETEENTH Annual GIS In Action Conference, hosted by the Columbia River Region of the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) and the Oregon-Southwest Washington Chapter of the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA). Each year ASPRS and URISA collaborate to hold this informational conference on current issues in the Geospatial Information Community. Join us for what will surely be another successful opportunity to meet with colleagues in the geospatial industries and organizations, to learn about emerging topics and recent advances in GIS applications, and to discuss our problems and solutions together. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to meet and network with GIS professionals from the region. Find out who is doing what, and how.

Portland State University will graciously host this year’s conference for the second consecutive year! The raving positive feedback from the 2010 conference survey has led us to use the PSU facility once again. Holding the conference at Portland State creates exciting opportunities to include PSU students from other departments, members of the open source community and engineering, surveying and natural resources professionals who are all an important part of the GIS community.
