NW/NC GIS User Group Meeting – By Jane Mueller

The NW/NC GIS User Group met Tuesday, August 14th at the Beltrami County Administration Building in Bemidji, MN.  An invitation was extended to the Northern Minnesota GIS Users Group to join us for the day and several attended.  A total of 47 GIS users from various city, county, federal, and tribal agencies as well as private businesses throughout the state attended the event.  The focus of the meeting was mobile technology and use of apps in the field.  The morning was filled with 10 user demonstrations of various ArcGIS Online, Collector, Avenza and/or Survey123 projects and what they saw as the pros and cons of each.  Networking opportunities were provided and the room was buzzing with talk of GIS and mobile apps!  Chris Pouliot, Information Technology Specialist with MN IT Services, presented “What It Takes to Make A Good Collector App” to the group throughout the afternoon.   A very special thank you to the MN GIS/LIS Consortium for funding an event grant that helped to make this event possible.  Anyone wishing to receive information on upcoming events of the group can email to be added to their email list.
