What People Are Saying

NYGeoCon is like Thanksgiving so much preparation, a great time, but over way too fast.

James Zollweg

Associate Professor, The College at Brockport

With the rapid pace of developments and changes in Geospatial Technologies, it is very hard to stay current. I appreciate that the NYS GIS Association provides many ways to stay informed with webinars, tutorials and meetings such as the NYGeoCon and NY GeoSpatial Summit. As someone who is the sole GIS support for my organization, this helps me to feel connected to the larger community of geospatial professionals. As an educator, I appreciate the opportunity students are given to present at the NYS GIS Association’s professional meetings.

Carol Cady

St. Lawrence University

Becoming a member of the NYS GIS Assoc. is one of the best things I’ve done for my career! Events such as the summit and annual conference help provide critical professional connections as well as some good friendships while keeping me up-to-date with recent developments in the industry and across the state.
