Web and mobile mapping are on the rise; people are consuming maps in their browsers and on their smart phones now more than ever. The 27th annual Northwest GIS Users Conference will help you cultivate ideas for producing rich cartographic products and for making responsive web map services to meet society's demand to consume on the go. We hope to see you there!
We hope you were able to attend last fall's joint URISA GIS-Pro / Northwest GIS User Group conference in Portland. The conference was a great success with 600 GIS professionals attending. We had great training opportunities, a large vendor exhibit hall, keynote addresses from leaders in GIS, and a full agenda of user presentations. We are currently planning the next NWGIS conference in Sunriver, Oregon October 14-18, 2013 and would like your feedback on this fall's conference to help us in our planning.
