an annual gathering of 15,000 Geographic Information Systems specialists from all over the world. I look forward to this every year. Observing in the Map Gallery and noticing nametags and accents of those around me, Portugal, Russia, Sweden, Spain and more, is fascinating.
I have discovered that maps are more than just a "map" - the possibilities and information are unique, amazing, and infinite. + Always updating with new ideas and data, and moving forward to the future.
