2013 VAMLIS Virginia GIS Conference Poster Conference

2013 VAMLIS Virginia GIS Conference Poster Contest


A picture tells a thousand words! This is an open invitation to the geospatial community (local  governments, PDC’s, state agencies, federal governments working in Virginia, precollege students and faculty, higher education students and faculty) to share your work and ideas with others.  This is an excellent (and casual) way to share what your organization is doing with the rest of Virginia’s geospatial community!
