On May 19th, several members of the NYS GIS Association Board met with key representatives of New York State Association of Professional Land Surveyors (NYSAPLS) at the NYSAPLS office in Albany, NY. The meeting was held to discuss topics of common interest such as mapping via UAS/Drones, Geographic Information Systems, GPS technology, potential legislation, as well as opportunities to hold joint educational sessions for both memberships at upcoming events. The meeting was a great success, with plans to have several committees for each organization work together to further discuss key initiatives.
