2016 GeoSpatial Summit

The NYS GIS Association held the 2016 NYS GeoSpatial Summit on October 21, 2016, at the DB Pfizer Auditorium within the New York University Bern Dibner Library of Science and Technology in downtown Brooklyn, New York. This one-day event, with an evening reception the night before, featured eight excellent keynote speakers who gave talks on a variety of topics. Check out the “Program” tab above to see the entire lineup. Attendees also enjoyed time to network with colleagues and GIS professionals from across New York State. Thank you to all our terrific sponsors for making this event a success!

The next Summit is coming in the fall of 2018. Details will be announced here as soon as they become available.
