Closing Remarks

 

Call for Posters

Posters will hang in the upper concourse of the Legislative Office Building for the entire month of November! This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase mapping activities and applications throughout Connecticut.

 

Posters must be mounted on some sort of rigid material (i.e. foam board, etc.), approximately 24” x 36” in size (slightly larger will be accepted, but no smaller).

 

Also, NEW this year, we are looking for poster presentations (5 minutes in length) from GIS or related subject students from Connecticut Universities. If you are looking for GISP points, this could be a great way to add to your total!

 

Call for Presentations

There will be a number of presentations as part of the GIS Day Event. Presentations should discuss a GIS project, tool, custom process, or similarly themed topic. We are looking for a 15 minute presentation with 5 additional minutes for questions and answers.

 

Table Displays

We are asking for interested parties that wish to host a table to display information. This is open to anyone this year! We ask that your display maintain an educational theme. Show us how you use GIS in your organization or group!

 

Parking

Parking is available in lots A, B or D.
