RICHMOND HILL, ONTARIO, CANADA and DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – May 29, 2007 – Shafik Jiwani, Chief Operating Officer of Orion Technology Inc., was a keynote speaker at this year’s annual GISWORX conference in Dubai.
GISWORX 2007, hosted by GISTEC, was the second annual three-day event featuring GIS Workshops and Exhibitions for ESRI users.
