Storytelling, Cupcakes & TV
Telling our stories helps us communicate and build consensus. While the Internet has opened up new and creative ways to build and share those stories, low-tech/high touch can work wonders too! Further, the story of GIS is also told when GIS analysis and digital mapping shows up film and television. Sometimes it is "fantastical" - really, who wouldn't want those CSI apps? - but sometimes they show real, cutting edge technology. This session features both high tech and high touch ways to communicate and tell our stories.

Presentation Luncheon

Head to the ballroom and fill up a plate! This session will begin with something new, a Vendor Spark session. It’s an opportunity for you to hear highlights from each exhibitor at GIS-Pro. What sets one company apart from another? Why should you stop by their booth tonight during the networking reception? What cool giveaways do they have? You won’t hear long-winded sales pitches during this session. Short but sweet is the name of the game! 

Then, we are pleased to present a stellar line-up of luncheon presentations. Individual presentations (15-20 minutes in duration) will be made a bit more informally at a lunch table instead of at a podium. The format offers the opportunity for in-depth discussion, questions & answers about the topic being presented.

Water - Our Most Important and Critical Resource

Recent studies show that thousands of miles of underground pipes that move water from treatment plants to taps are leaking: anywhere from 13-30%. At the same time, wastewater and stormwater systems are rapidly aging, allowing pollutants to flow into rivers, lakes and oceans. Learn how various organizations are using GIS to depict threats and hazards using map services and other technologies that incorporate analysis tools into their design.
