MN GIS/LIS Conference - Oct 3-5, '05

15th Annual Conference & Workshops, October 3-5, 2005 - St. Cloud, Minnesota

"The Minnesota GIS/LIS Consortium will hold its 15th Annual Conference and Workshops on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Land Information Systems (LIS) on October 3-5, 2005 at the Saint Cloud Civic Center in Saint Cloud, Minnesota."

It is a great GIS event to attend if you live the Minnesota region. In general I would rate this event as being excellent for nearly all in and involved with the GIS field.

The only downside to this event, and this is solely from a techy/personal perspective of years past, I don't expect that anything will be covered at the "super-geek" level or in overly technical terms. For the vast majority in the GIS field, this means a perfect event - but for those [few] of us looking for the latest and can fall short. However, not all conferences can be the MapServer conference now can they?!

Also of note - I believe MapServer and other Web mapping topics will be covered at the event. Most likely the coverage will be more focused at the beginner level - so anyone even thinking about getting into Web mapping should watch the Site and sign up early for any MapServer offerings, as I'm sure available seats for any workshops will fill VERY fast.
