GIS-Pro 2012 Early Registration Discounts Until August 1

Des Plaines, IL (July 16, 2012) – URISA has announced an extension of the discounted early registration rate to August 1 for GIS-Pro 2012: URISA’s 50th Annual Conference for GIS Professionals. GIS-Pro 2012 is taking place September 30-October 4, 2012 in Portland, Oregon. 

Much earlier than expected, the URISA conference room block at the Hilton Portland was filled. Fortunately, we were able to add more rooms to accommodate the high level of interest in GIS-Pro 2012. The early conference registration discount offer was extended to August 1 in order to give participants a little more time to make travel plans and take advantage of the savings.

Educational sessions will cover topics ranging from GIS maturity and Return on Investment (ROI) to GIS leadership, ethics and management strategies. Explore open source solutions, cloud computing and the mobile future.  Visit http://www.urisa.org/gispro2012   for complete details about the invited speakers, peer presentations, lightning talks, luncheon presentations, and networking activities. 

Our esteemed keynote speakers include: Professor Michael Goodchild, University of California, Santa Barbara; John Sanderson, Microsoft's Cloud Evangelist; and Jack Dangermond, President of Esri.

  • Understanding and Using Python & ArcPy in ArcGIS 10  
  • Working with Geodatabases & Linear Referencing
  • ArcPad 10 Bootcamp™
