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
