The GeoiTech Center has provided funding to support student participation at the CalGIS conference in Monterrey, CA, April 14-16, 2014. This state-wide conference will bring geospatial leaders together to network and support geospatial technology. Participation by students in the conference will help prepare them to enter a geospatial career. The conference is hosted by the Northern, Southern and Central California Chapters of URISA, the Bay Area Automated Mapping Association (BAAMA) and the California Geographic Information Association (CGIS). Attend CalGIS and listen to speakers such as Jack Dangermond, Esri, Mike Migurrski, Code of America, Eric Gunderson, MapBox and Dylan Lorimer, Google. If you can’t attend the conference, you can still learn about hot topics through five recorded Webinars hosted by CalGIS 2014.
