Don't Miss Free GITA Webinar: The Underutilization of GIS and How To Cure It

Date: Tuesday, February 26, 2019
Time: 2:00-3:00PM

It is vitally important that you proactively evangelize and market all of the GIS capabilities, says Adam Carnow, a Community Evangelist at Esri. His free GITA webinar will provide strategies on how to spread the understanding and full value of GIS across your organization.
