4th Annual Conference for GIS Educators in Maine
Friday, November 18, 2011

Who should attend? Anyone interested in geospatial technology in Maine, including K-12 teachers, informal educators, and faculty in both private and public institutions of higher education. This is a great chance to hone your skills and to meet and share ideas with other Maine educators. College and high school students can also gain key career skills and meet GIS professionals.

The 2010 conference featured K12 and higher education tracks!

Just getting started with GIS? The K12 track has some great choices for beginners, and K12 teachers attend free.

We've grown! We've outgrown our previous venue, so this year's conference was be in the Augusta Civic Center. Thanks to KVCC for generously hosting us in years 1 & 2.
