GIS in the Rockies in NOCO - sweet!

Registration is now open for the 21st annual GIS in The Rockies Conference (see pics from last year) - September 10-12, 2008, The Ranch, Loveland, CO. Cool to see that this event is in NOCO this year, just up the road from yours truly - nice! Should be cool to meet up with people right here in my backyard here in Fort Collins... no doubt there will be a few Fat Tires and Easy Street Beers thrown back during the 3 days. Gimme a ring if you plan on making it here! See

Speaking of events, GITA, just south of here in Aurora, CO has announced a call for papers for the 2009 Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference, slated for April 19-22, at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Fla. Tampa is a great place and loads of fun, maybe too much fun! I've found in the past that many people tend to piggy-back events in Tampa with a family vacation (I know I took the fam. to Busch Gardens one year) some speculating low numbers sitting in on sessions - hopefully that won't happen next year. Of note, one of the best GITA events I've even attended was back around 2000 (or was in 99?) here in Denver, CO, hopefully one of these years the conference will return. It's a great venue and I know that there's many GISers out there that enjoy LODO after the long days. See more at
