What is NYGeoCon?
For over 30 years Geospatial Professionals from throughout New York State and surrounding regions have been gathering to network, share and discover the latest in GIS and related technology. NYGeoCon is the premier New York State GIS conference. It occurs only once every two years and provides an opportunity for you to obtain training, see timely presentations, attend workshops and find out what your peers are doing.
The NYS GIS Association is pleased to announce that we have received a generous $10,000 grant from the Fund For the City of New York to determine the GIS needs and resources in local government throughout New York State. We look forward to furthering our mission to support development of GIS throughout New York State by embarking on this new endeavor.
Please see the Emerging GIS Resources page and check back often as we will be adding new content. Second video added January 2016. If you'd like more information please contact Mickey Dietrich at firstname.lastname@example.org
Take the survey and ensure your municipality is represented.
