Presentation at the Annual Iowa IT Symposium

Last Thursday the Iowa GIS Service Bureau  attended and presented at the annual Iowa IT Symposium in Des Moines, IA.  The IT Symposium is a day full of information technology focused breakout sessions, keynote presentations, and networking opportunities.

Though not specifically a GIS or geospatial conference, many people seemed familiar with the benefits of spatial information.  Audience members from private industry and government institutions brought up questions related to mapping customer/client locations, insurance rate inputs, and general data maintenance. 

The day was a unique opportunity to discuss the value of GIS with an interested, but not necessarily "GIS crowd".  Overall it was a valuable experience to reach outside our normal sphere of interaction.
