Location is Power: The Changing Role of GIS in Organizations

January 25, 2018

The role of GIS has been evolving since the concept of computer aided mapping and spatial analysis was conceived in the 1960s.

Chris will share his vision of the path forward for GIS and make the case that a fundamental shift is needed in the way we deploy, use and even think about GIS.
