Nevada Geographic
 Information Society


NGIS promotes professionalism, cooperation, mutual assistance and sharing of
knowledge and experience related to the advancement of geographic information
and spatial data technologies within the state of Nevada.





The Nevada Geographic Information Society is excited to celebrate our 26th anniversary in Las Vegas and we hope you will be able to join us. We are proud to be celebrating 26 years of sharing information and innovations with others in our exciting, ever-changing field, and are currently seeking proposals for conference presentations. Oftentimes when we do tasks on a regular basis, we take for granted our use of GIS and how it is helping us be more productive. Please take a minute to think about how presenting your day-to-day use of GIS could help other GIS users be more successful.


Presentation proposals on topics related to GIS will be considered and judged on their value and relevance to the conference program. The deadline for receipt of proposals is April 3, 2017. Notification of acceptance will be sent by email one week after submission.
