MGUG 2019 Fall Conference
Love Spatial Data? This is the conference for you! Speakers on Cartography and Geographic Information Systems!
The Manitoba GIS User Group, also known as MGUG, is a group of geospatial minded professionals that support the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for data management, spatial analysis, and visualization.
The group meets several times a year to help its members to learn more about current activities and the latest technologies within the geomatics sector while networking with peers.
Every year MGUG host their annual Fall Conference that brings together over 300 GIS professionals from the private sector, government, non profits, and academics.
This year the MGUG Fall Conference will take place at the Club Regent Event Centre in Winnipeg on October 23rd. The event will provide geospatial users in Manitoba an opportunity to learn more about the latest software innovations.
This year Ken Field from Esri will headline the presentations. Ken is a professional ‘cartonerd’ with a Bachelors in cartography and a PhD in GIS. He he talks and writes about cartography, teaches, makes maps, and still gets frustrated with ArcGIS crashing at Esri but it’s part of his job to reduce that particular problem.
He has presented and published an awful lot. He sometimes blogs, he tweets way too much, is past Editor of The Cartographic Journal, and Co-Chair of the ICA Map Design Commission. He is author of the best-selling book CARTOGRAPHY and has taught a MOOC to over 100,000 people interested in making better maps.
Dates: October 23rd
Location: Club Regent Event Centre (1425 Regent Ave. W. Winnipeg, Manitoba R2C 3B2)
