EDUCATE. Collaborate. INSPIRE.
The Northeastern Minnesota GIS User Group is made up of GIS professionals throughout Northeastern Minnesota. The group was started to support members in the public and private sectors, providing networking opportunities, showcase projects, encourage knowledge sharing, and to keep members current on the evolving technology within GIS. The group meets on a quarterly basis at different locations in order to provide opportunities to those that may have travel restrictions. The format of the meeting is loosely structured, but usually consists of announcements, 2 presentations, and an around-the-room update from each group member. The presentations highlight what other agencies are doing and how they are utilizing the GIS tools and software. This is also an opportunity for others to ask questions and learn how they can do similar projects in their workplace.
