The California Geographic Information Association (CGIA), along with several sponsors including the City of Merced, is hosting the 3rd Annual GeoSummit on Friday, April 5, 2013, from 8:30am – 4:00pm. Building on the great success of last year, UC Merced is again hosting the event on their beautiful campus, in the California Room. The theme is GIS and Frontiers of Knowledge, and the focus will be education and professional development in GIS.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a system of computer software, hardware and data, and personnel to help manipulate, analyze, and present information that is tied to a location.
The keynote speaker is Steve Shackelton, former Yosemite National Park Chief Ranger. The day is filled with great speakers, breakout sessions with educators and GIS professionals, and a map gallery display.
