Aurora, Colo. - The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) offered a special membership discount starting 9/9/09 to celebrate the launch of, an evolving, community-based information center focused on geospatial solutions for the infrastructure.

Members receive further discounts on 2010 Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference registration. The event is slated for April 25-29, 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona, and full program information and online registration are available at

“A conference discount is just one benefit of membership. The greater benefit is access to other members,” said Ralph Anhold, 2010 Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference Chair and Account Manager at ESRI. “GITA creates many avenues of communication, collaboration, and knowledge transfer between members.”

GITA members have access to two of the most exciting features on the online community and GIT4Infrastructure Information Feed. The online community allows GITA members to network, build a 2010 Solutions Conference Itinerary of sessions and seminars, and integrate their Twitter account. A new notifications feature has been added so members can choose how to receive forum posts, and there are more features coming by spring 2010. The information feed gives members access to the latest audio files, blogs, interviews, news, opinions, press releases, tweets, and videos, focused on geospatial solutions for the infrastructure.

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 to become a daily information resource for geospatially managing, protecting, maintaining, and operating the infrastructure.

The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) is the professional association and leading advocate for anyone using geospatial technology to help operate, maintain, and protect the infrastructure, which includes organizations such as utilities, telecommunication companies, and the public sector. Through industry leading conferences-along with research initiatives, chapters, membership, and other programs-GITA provides education and professional best practices. Visit GITA on the Web at
