Greetings to all of our GITA volunteers and members!  Hopefully you are enjoying your summer and perhaps relaxing with some down time at the beach or mountains, getting away from work for a week or two!

At GITA we're working hard while you're enjoying your summer, no down time for our staff and volunteers, following are some highlights of recent association activities:

  • EnerGIS 2017 was another rousing success with 1.5 days of geospatial presentations, networking, and scholarship awards!  Visit the EnerGIS Website for details on the planned 2018 version of this ongoing GITA effort.
  • Focused lobbying and opposition to the National Geospatial Act.  This is an important issue that could seriously affect how you and firm conduct your GIS, GPS, and geospatial services.  Please keep informed on this vey serious issue.  Read the GITA Position Paper here!
  • Preparing for Pipeline Week, and the GITA Scholarship golf tournament.  If you are involved in the pipeline or energy industry this is a not to miss event.  The event returns to Houston's Galleria, October 3-5. Visit the Pipeline Week Website for details and ticketing options!  GITA Members receive discounts on admission.
