NYS GIS Association on Twitter

One of the goals stated in the Communications Committee’s Mission Statement is to disseminate information about NYS GISA through an active Twitter account. In 2010, we began assembling a list of GIS-centric Twitter users and have developed quite a following. If you would like to join the conversation, you can follow us at @NYS_GISA
