Since its inception in Ft. Collins, CO in 1989, GIS in the Rockies has brought together a veritable cornucopia of leading professionals from an array of industries, government entities and varied disciplines. Another way of stating it is that this conference has brought you together. Your knowledge, expertise, skills, genius and professionalism perpetually make the conference a success. This year demonstrates how much you and your colleagues want to participate in the conference as well as glean from the benefits of industry successes and collaboration. We have over 100 sessions and poster presentations, not to mention two dynamic keynote speakers well rooted in the geospatial arena. Let’s also celebrate all of the individuals who have volunteered their time to bring you the best possible conference. As you know, the geospatial field is ever growing, ever changing, and propelling forward. This year we will build this core discipline by strengthening our foundation locally, while improving our understanding of its impact on a global scale. As individuals, companies, non-profit organizations, and government entities advance geospatial information by pushing and stretching it throughout familiar areas and into uncharted territories, so goes the art of GIS itself. Together we will keep geospatial on the move.

    • 54 GIS Colorado (also known as “GISCO”) is a statewide grass-roots organization providing a cooperative environment of GIS users from both public and private sectors. The primary goal of GIS Colorado is to foster communication and education to advance the level of effectiveness of GIS use in Colorado. The group maintains a list-server, and hosts educational events and quarterly forums on various GIS topics in different parts of Colorado to encourage learning and data sharing. www.giscolorado.com URISA is an interdisciplinary society dedicated to stimulating and encouraging the effective integration and application of information technology and urban and regional information for decision-making. A nonprofit educational association, URISA provides a forum for users of spatial information in both the public and private sectors. Founded in 1982, RM/URISA is a regional chapter serving the Rocky Mountain area, including the states of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. www.urisa.org ASPRS The Imaging and Geospatial Information Society. ASPRS, founded in 1934, is a scientific association serving over 7,000 professional members around the world. Our mission is to advance knowledge and improve understanding of mapping sciences to promote the responsible applications of photogrammetry, remote sensing, GIS, and supporting geotechnologies. ASPRS members work in a variety of disciplines from education and engineering to aerospace and agriculture. The Rocky Mountain Region serves ASPRS members in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. www.asprs.org PLSC is a non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of land surveying education and practice throughout Colorado.

    • 76 James Fee is owner and founder of Spatially Adjusted. He has been working in the geospatial industry for almost 20 years as a consultant, programmer, manager and user. James has blogged about GIS for over 8 years at spatiallyadjusted.com where he comments frequently on the state of geospatial technology, trends, and baseball. His blog is one of the most widely read online publications about GIS. He also founded Planet Geospatial, a GIS news aggregator, to share and promote geospatial technology. James’ current focus is on GeoDesign and how geospatial concepts can help humans protect and improve the world around them by building with nature instead of against it. His focus is on open technologies that can be applied across disciplines and platforms so that anyone can take advantage of GIS. James has been involved with Esri, open source projects, OpenStreetMap, as well as humanitarian GIS initiatives. James speaks and teaches regularly at conferences around the world. Keynote Speaker James Fee Frank Biasi is the Director of Digital Development for National Geographic Maps in Evergreen, Colorado, where he produces websites, maps and apps focused on environmental conservation and sustainability. He has managed geospatial programs in the nonprofit and public sectors for over 20 years, conducting GIS and mapping projects at local, state, national and global scales. Prior to joining National Geographic in 2006, he worked for The Nature Conservancy (TNC) as a Regional GIS Manager, Enterprise GIS Manager and Director of Conservation Systems where he led the diffusion of GIS across the organization and its integration with the organization’s IT infrastructure. Prior to TNC he worked for the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection where he managed the development of a statewide wetlands database and digital orthophoto mapping program. He is a past president of the Society for Conservation GIS and a member of the IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Geography and Art from Clark University and a Master’s in Environment from Duke University. He is currently focused on the integration of maps, multimedia and storytelling to raise awareness and understanding of environmental issues and promote sustainable travel and tourism. His current projects include EnergyRealities.org, EnvisiontheJames.org and GeoStories.org, as well as a forthcoming multimedia atlas for the Colorado River Basin. Keynote Speaker Frank Biasi

    • 1716 MetCom (Metropolitan Area Communication Center): 911, Fire, EMS The Metropolitan Area Communications Center (MetCom) was designed to serve as a regional Fire/ EMS emergency communications center committed to outstanding patient care, exceptional customer service and improved call handling performance. GIS works in conjunction with MetCom’s Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) to display geographic information on a computerized map of our district and surrounding districts for mutual aid. The location of 911 calls made from landline phones displays on the map, as does the general location of cell phone callers who have Phase II compliant phones. Our data includes detailed information to the firefighter or paramedic in the field. Available data includes but is not limited to: hydrant data, addresses, water mains, trails, rivers, driveways, aerial photography, plus more. The highly accurate data for the GIS mapping used by CAD is maintained internally with dedicated staff to provide the most up-to-date information possible. NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is the U.S. Department of Energy’s primary national laboratory for renewable energy and energy efficiency research and development. NREL develops renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies and practices, advances related science and engineering, and transfers knowledge and innovations to address the nation’s energy and environmental goals. As the nation’s leading center for renewable energy research, NREL is developing new energy technologies to benefit both the environment and the economy. Visitors learn about energy from the sun, wind, biomass, hydrogen, and other sources of renewable energy. Find out how scientists capture alternative energy resources to produce electricity and fuels. Investigate advanced vehicles.
