Geo for Good User Summit 2016 Agenda


Color code key to Geo for Good Streams

Google mapping for GIS specialists

Explore the power of Google tools you can use to grow your GIS toolkit. These sessions are designed for attendees who are GIS or mapping specialists and developers.

Google mapping for project managers

Do you find yourself frequently creating and using maps for your projects, to maintain or deploy operations, understand issues and make decisions? These sessions are designed for attendees who don’t necessarily have a background in GIS, but have become the de facto mapping person at their organization.

Google mapping for public awareness

Seeing is believing. You want to educate the  public about an important issue and you think a map is key to understanding. These sessions are designed for attendees who don’t necessarily have a background in GIS, but want to make your organization’s data and maps more accessible and engaging for the public.
