Des Plaines, IL (March 5, 2012) - URISA, the Association for GIS Professionals, is offering two URISA Certified Workshops at its Headquarters in Des Plaines, IL.

Tuesday, March 20, 2012 from 8:30 AM- 5:00 PM

Field Automation Options for Local Government

This workshop is designed to provide local government managers with practical guidelines for building an effective mobile GIS program across multiple departments. One way to meet demands for providing superior service levels and operational efficiencies under tightening budget constraints is to leverage new technology that places GIS data in the hands of field crews. This allows for improved management and better maintenance of work processes to properly appraise infrastructure assets and to meet service request response times.

Thursday, June 21, 2012, from 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM
