Fourth Annual Geospatial Conference
USM Gulf Park welcomed more than 100 professionals and students from all over the state, Louisiana, and Alabama to network and learn about geographic information science related fields.
The fourth annual Mississippi Geospatial Conference is sponsored by the Mississippi Association for Spatial Technologies. Several government agencies were in attendance inlcuding MEMA, the DMR, and MDEQ.
Geospatial technology comes in handy for things like looking at fish habitats, assessing flood zones, planning for natural disaster mitigation, and even planning where the next Wal-Mart or convenience store will be.
The conference continues tomorrow at the Fleming Education Center Auditorium until noon.
