2020 Conference - Cancelled
As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, we need to make tough choices. Our coming together provides opportunities for attendees to explore and connect with others, providing value that simply cannot be replaced with a virtual conference. The Board of Directors feel strongly that the health and safety of our members and their families must be our number one priority. Health, along with travel restrictions and budget cuts, were the main reasons for our decision to cancel.
To help replace the benefits lost by this cancellation, we encourage BHDMA members to consider attending other events being held virtually this summer and fall. Esri’s International User Conference (https://www.esri.com/en-us/about/events) will be held virtually, and ACSM (The American Congress of Surveying and Mapping) has replaced their annual meeting with a virtual event to be held later this summer (https://www.acsm.org/attend-connect/covid-19).
The BHDMA Directors plan to use this time to focus on a high-quality in-person conference in the fall of 2021.
Thank you for your understanding, and stay safe!
Angie Tallon, President – Black Hills Digital Mapping Association and the Board of Directors
Thank you to the 2019 conference sponsors!
The Black Hills Digital Mapping Association originated in the early 1990's because of a need for the development of digital data in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Geographic Information System base data layers were desired, and coordination and sharing of funds between local counties, the state, the US Forest Service, and the USGS enabled the creation of these digital products. The group continues to meet on an annual basis because there is a strong desire among members to learn about new technologies, learn how GIS projects are being implemented in this region, receive training, and learn about data sharing opportunities.
The organization registered with the State of South Dakota as a non-profit corporation in 2005. The membership base includes representatives from all levels of government (Federal, State, County, and City), academia, tribal, and the private sector, and includes over 100 members.
