GITA members will have exclusive access to two of the center's most exciting features, a year-round online community coming in October 2009 and a GIT4Infrastructure Information Feed, launching in November 2009.

“In a time where everybody-because of the economic situation-is consolidating and watching resources, we felt it was important to take some bold action to position the association as a geospatial thought leader for infrastructure,” said Robert M. Samborski, GITA’s executive director. “This Web site is our commitment to the geospatial community.”

GITA is the go-to association for geospatial practitioners from infrastructure organizations, including electric and gas utilities, public agencies, communications companies, oil/gas/pipeline companies, water/wastewater organizations, transportation, emergency responders, and more. The association created this site to become a daily information resource for geospatially managing, protecting, maintaining, and operating the infrastructure.

Sections of include: reference materials, applicable technology, networking, interactive features, and news.
