Southern Maryland GIS User Group Meeting

The Friday, December 12, 2014 will feature the next installment of the Southern Maryland GIS User Group, meeting at the public library in Charlotte Hall, MD, from 9am to 1pm. We have several lighting talks and long-form presentations in store, centered around GIS, its applications, and open data.


A sample of the offerings include:

  • A facilitated discussion, led by Barney Krucoff, GIO of Maryland, on enhancing collaboration between state and county governments.
  • A lightning talk on federated search by Voyager
  • A talk by Esri on the Open Data tool implemented by Maryland iMap
  • A talk by my Zekiah colleague, Dan Entzian, on his work with CityEngine and the Oculus Rift.

I’ve been lucky enough to work with a great team, including Calvin Strozier (St. Mary’s County Government), Lisa Lowe (Maryland Department of Information, Matt Webb (Anne Arundel County Government), and Pat McLaughlin (Spatial Systems, Inc.). We’re hoping to make this a regular occurrence so please come out and help strengthen the regional geospatial community. Registration for this no-cost event, as well as the full agenda, is available on Eventbrite.

We hope to see you there!
