March 02, 2010 -- St. Charles, IL – Sidwell’s Mark Dupree, Director of GIS Sales, has been selected to present multiple sessions at the upcoming 14th Annual GIS/CAMA Technologies conference in Little Rock, Arkansas. These sessions will feature critical information on the application of GIS technology to data development and management as well as successful sharing of geospatial data between local government entities. This conference is a valuable educational and networking event for any Professionals in Property Assessment, Tax Administration, Mapping and Information Technology.
Dupree’s first session on March 9, ‘GIS: Building a Strong Foundation’, will look at standards integral to the foundation of any GIS to ensure its longevity and value throughout an enterprise. Understanding how the GIS was built will allow current and future users to effectively apply technology to improve and enhance their operation and maximize their investment in GIS.
The second session, which takes place on March 10, is ‘Reaching Across Borders with GIS’. This session features a case study on multi-jurisdictional sharing of geospatial data between a group of local government entities, and how these counties were able to work together to set standards and achieve their goal of effectively sharing data between multiple taxing districts, emergency service districts, and municipalities that cross county boundaries.
These sessions are approved for IAAO training credits, and Mr. Dupree is an IAAO-certified instructor, possesses the designation of GISP from the GIS Certification Institute, and has previously served as both the co-chair and chair of IAAO’s Mapping/GIS Section. The Sidwell Company will also be exhibiting at the GIS/CAMA Technologies Conference.
