The biannual Mid American GIS Consortium (MAGIC) Conference was held last week in Kansas City, Missouri. Half of the Iowa GIS Service Bureau was able to attend, and it proved informative, useful, and entertaining . Mid-American GIS users from all levels of government, private business, education, and any other category you can imagine, presented, listened to, and discussed GIS topics from Monday to Thursday.
usage and needs assessment the Service Bureau initially undertook last Fall.
The conference was a good way to reconnect with GIS users from all around Iowa (picture above) and the Midwest and learn of their successes.
The Service Bureau would like to encourage anyone interested in GIS to seriously consider attending the MAGIC Conference in 2014.
