The North Carolina Center for Geographic Information and Analysis (CGIA) will host the 13th biannual NC GIS Conference on February 7-8 at the Raleigh Convention Center. The conference brings together experts in the field of geographic information systems (GIS), with an emphasis on their use in state and local government, as well as in the educational community. This year’s theme is “The Power of Place.”
The event kicks off with a day of pre-conference workshops on Wednesday, February 6, sponsored by the Carolina Chapter of the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (CURISA), which serves as the professional association for the GIS user community in North and South Carolina. The two-day conference then follows with concurrent sessions covering four topic areas:
The biannual NC GIS Conference began in 1987 under the leadership of the late Wake County Commissioner Herb Stout. An award in his name honors exemplary use of GIS by local government. This year, the conference will present three Herb Stout awards: one for a city or town government, one for a county government, and one for a regional government or local/regional authority.
