About the Conference

30 years of advancing GIS in North Carolina
Come join us!

Since 1987, the NC GIS Conference has brought together professionals from across the state to share in their experiences and learn about current trends and technologies affecting the GIS community. Attracting over 1000 registrants in 2015 and averaging 50+ vendors for the last 28 years we expect another fabulous event.

The conference depends on a number of committees that are comprised of volunteers to help plan and run this two day event. Without their participation it would not be the success that it is. Get involved! If you are willing to lend a hand then all you have to do is contact us . We can always use more help.
