Last summer, more than 400 K-12 teachers, college and university instructors, school administrators, librarians, and museum professionals from more than 20 countries shared their experiences of using GIS in the classroom, for research, for public access, and for planning and administration. For 2002, even more attendees are expected to participate in nearly 200 presentations, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops.
Dr. Michael Goodchild of the National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis (NCGIA) is scheduled to present the opening keynote address. This year's event also includes a special track focused on the upcoming bicentennial of the Lewis & Clark expedition and the geospatial education and research activities associated with this important commemoration. Mr. Gerard Baker, Superintendent of the Lewis & Clark Corps of Discovery II Project with the National Park Service, will provide the closing address.
This event immediately precedes the ESRI International User Conference, a gathering of over 10,000 GIS users from all over the world.
