IMIA Americas MeetUP – Lakewood, CO June 14

If you are in the Denver area on Tuesday, June 14, 2016, please join us as the International Map Industry Association will be hosting a MeetUP from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. at the National Park Service offices in Lakewood, CO, just west of Denver.

Maps.com Director of Education and President of IMIA Americas, Bennett Moe, will be attending the International IMIA MeetUP in Denver on June 14. There will be ample networking time and this will be a great opportunity to meet and discuss mapping industry-related business with him, including how Maps.com continues to iterate on its leading cartography and geo-spatial application development in education and commercial sectors.

IMIA Americas MeetUP will be hosting a pair of panel discussions. Brian Fox will be hosting the first panel, focused on the various efforts underway in the Federal government to bring data together and make it available to government, industry partners and the public. Fox is currently the Systems Development Branch Chief for USGS’s National Geospatial Technical Operations Center (NGTOC) where he oversees development activity in support of The National Map.

Federal Geospatial Data Consolidation Efforts

Efforts are currently underway to consolidate and improve geospatial data throughout the Federal Government. Land management agencies are actively bringing together data from their various local and regional offices, while the USGS is making some of this data available through The National Map. These efforts are helping to improve the quality and access to geospatial data. This panel will allow those attending the IMIA Denver MeetUP to better understand the data that is current and what will be available in the near future from various agencies of the Federal Government.
