Denver, September 8, 2008 –Colorado State Governor Bill Ritter has recognized the substantial contributions made by GIS related industries to Colorado and has officially declared September 8-14, 2008 as GIS Week.

GIS Week coincides with the 21st Annual GIS in the Rockies conference, September 10-12th, 2008 at the Ranch in Loveland, CO. The conference theme is "Mapping Your Assets".

To be recognized in this way underscores the importance geospatial imaging technology has on the way businesses move into the future. The Colorado Front Range is one of the main centers for geo-technologies in the United States.

Spatial information management is changing the way C-level executives grow their companies and manage their bottom lines. From location-based services to mapping business assets, these new advances are changing business in a fundamental way.  And, according to Jeff Akers, President of Colorado engineering and spatial information management powerhouse CH2M HILL, and Keynote Speaker at GIS In the Rockies Conference, if CEOs and other C-level leaders don’t start to take full advantage of this business-changing technology and “get on the bandwagon, their competitors are going to eat them for lunch.”
