Well, after 18 months of start and stop planning, GITA's Geospatially Enabling
Community Collaboration (GECCo) workshop will finally arrive in the Twin Cities on October 27th and 28th. There are three (3) separate events to the Twin Cities GECCo - and each event requires a ticket to attend (sorry - this limitation is due to funding constraints).
Tickets are free and will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis after a limited number of special invites have had an opportunity to respond.
The three events, and associated ticket distribution methods are as follows:
- GITA Presents: Dr. Carl Reed - Thursday, October 27th, 6:00 PM. This will be a unique opportunity for Minnesota's geospatial community and other interested parties to hear first hand from one of the world's leading experts about the challenges and way forward for the many uses of geospatial information.
