Greetings Colleagues!

There's much ado here at GITA.  As you may have noticed, our new website is up and running.  Within these ethereal walls you will find many new membership benefits.  Please take a moment to view the short video about how to use this site - you can find it at the top of the Member Benefits section of "Join Now" on the menu at left.

We're really ramping up our efforts to bring you first rate educational content.  Today's webinar about un-manned aircraft systems had more than 100 participants and was a great first joint endeavor between GITA and ASPRS.  We're looking to continue knocking down silo walls amongst the various professional geospatial organizations in an effort to bring you more first rate content and collaborative efforts.  After all, GIS is a team sport...

Please take note of the following upcoming events listed under the "Calendar" section of the site found at the lower-right of the home page.  Highlights include:

15 September: EnerGIS 2014 in Pittsburg will focus on the use of spatial technologies in the energy industry.  Visit the Learning Center and search using "EnerGIS" to see some of last's year's presentations.

16 September: Seismic Hazards for Water Systems is the 1pm CDT webinar by East Bay Municipal Utilities District

29 September: Making $ense of Integration at SDU Harbour Centre will be GITA Pacific Northwest's annual meeting

28--30 October is Pipeline Week, GITA's annual Oil and Gas Pipeline conference in Houston (

As we continue to grow, we're looking for volunteers to help organize webinars, help us with managing social media, contribute content to the Learning Center, and organize and re-energize our chapters, and to serve on the Awards Committee.  Please drop me a note at if you're willing and able to pitch in!
