It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 10th Annual NW PA GIS Conference. This conference presents some of the best geographic information system (GIS) practices in our community today.

Many life-changing stories could be told during 10 years of hard work and dedication. Students graduated, started on their first project, got promoted in their workplace, and now they are responsible for the GIS charges in their enterprise. Existing businesses have thrived, assigned challenging tasks, extended their spatial operations, adopted new technologies, and achieved high results and recognition. Local governments developed GIS departments, built data and services, enhanced their inter-departmental operations, and went beyond just map making. Researchers and educators expanded their exploratory horizons, tapped into new fields, created new methods, and adopted a path of discovery and intellectual endeavor.

Regardless of the path that you selected for your career, the achievements that you made within your organization, or the new grounds you or your institution have explored, come and share with the Northwest PA GIS community your success stories and achievements within the last decade. Register now.
