Call for Presentations online
IGUC invites mapping and GIS professionals to submit abstracts for GeoSpatial World 2003 technical presentations that range from implementation processes to project results, from organizational issues to lessons learned along the way. The deadline for abstract submission is November 1, 2002.

Abstracts should deal with real-world applications of Intergraph Mapping and GIS Solutions' GIS and mapping software for geospatial infrastructure management, land information management, and map production and development. Intergraph users are asked to submit abstracts that focus on one of three areas: development, solutions, and industry. They can participate through paper presentations, invited sessions, workshops, or panel discussions. For detailed information on the focus areas and how to submit an abstract online, visit
