GIS has come a long way since the first AWRA GIS & Water Resources Conference 28 years ago: the very term “GIS” doesn’t mean the same thing as it did back then. Data, tools, models and good cartography are still incredibly important. Many of us still perform much of our geospatial work on desktop computers. But we have moved well beyond desktops to the cloud, to decision making and web-based applications that are integral to ecology and society, well beyond floodplain mapping. As GIS has changed, our biennial GIS and Water Resources conference is changing too!
This conference is designed around geospatial solutions to water resources-related problems. Innovative water resources scientists, engineers, modelers, software designers from public/government agencies, academic and private sectors convene to exchange ideas, compare challenges and identify solutions. If your aquatic research, management, and conservation involves process models, geo-referenced field data, remote sensing, or geostatistical models then this is the right conference for you.
