GIS-Pro 2020 has ended
Welcome to URISA’s GIS-Pro 2020 — A special virtual edition for challenging times.
We invite you to review the agenda, block your calendar, and join us virtually for URISA’s 58th Annual Conference. Our community has always been resilient and eager to help each other through a crisis. Be engaged. Ask questions. Explore solutions. Make the most of this opportunity. Be safe.

Workshops will be presented ’live’ on September 23 & 24 and after GIS-Pro on October 6 & 7. Attendance at one workshop is included with full registration.

Note that all times in this online agenda are presented in CENTRAL Time (URISA’s office is in Chicago).

You must be registered to access the online platform (which is not this Sched agenda).
