About the GIS Community of Practice

This purpose of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Community of Practice is to provide a venue for members of the campus community to share information, experiences, and ideas around GIS topics. We meet periodically for a presentation and discussion of broad general interest, and to provide a face-to-face forum for general knowledge sharing and networking with ones' GIS peers within the broader U-M community.
