The Society for Conservation GIS

Good Morning! We are preparing for our monthly GIS User Committee meeting here at the City. I've mentioned this in the past, but this is where all of our users meet to increase communication, learn new tools, and discuss the implementation of our enterprise GIS. Some of our topics today include: Joining Data in ArcGIS, Review of the SCAUG conference, Enterprise Implementation Status, and an update on some of the projects we are working on for the Fire department. You should really consider a group like this in your organization if you do not already have one.

"The Society for Conservation GIS (SCGIS) is a non-profit organization that builds community, provides knowledge, and supports individuals using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and science for the conservation of natural resources and cultural heritage. The SCGIS assists conservationists worldwide in using GIS through communication, networking, scholarships, and training. Membership is open to any individual seeking assistance in the achievement of personal or organizational conservation goals." Even if you do not use GIS for conservation purposes this is a great organization to support and it is inexpensive. Learn more at
