We're driven to contribute to the advancement of others
The ESRGC is committed to outreach and service by sharing our talents and experience with our state and local GIS communities as well as the next generation of geospatial professionals
From day one, ESRGC has been hosting quarterly regional GIS committee meetings that are open to anyone interested in GIS. These meetings bring together local and state government, private sector, and non-profit GIS users and consumers in one location to "talk shop" and learn from one another.
Please join our email list for notification about upcoming meetings.
