Once again some of the crew will be on the road this week, this time making a stop in Knoxville, TN for the annual TNGIC, Tennessee Geographic Information council conference. The event takes place at the Knoxville at the Crowne Plaza, Wednesday, April 26 – Thursday, April 27. Our own Neill Jobe (@neillJobe) and Jeremy Weber (@jeremyhweber) will be on hand once again at the event to meet with other Tennessee (and surrounding area) GIS professionals to share and discuss GEO Jobe’s strategy of The Power of GIS, Simplified.
The crew will be glad to meet with you to discuss our popular ArcGIS Online solutions including the Admin Tools suite of productivity Tools for administrators (available free, pro and for Portal), the GEOPowered Cloud solution for the enterprise, custom mapping solutions for facilities, EDU, local government, and utilities, as well as our UAV services to support clients from these industry verticals and others (construction, agriculture, mining and more)
TNGIC (Tennessee Geographic Information Council) was established in 1994 to improve the connection between the various agencies working with GIS in Tennessee. In January of 1990, 16 people met in Nashville and formed the Tennessee Natural Resources GIS Users Group. The preliminary purpose of this group was to share information about technology development and databases to avoid duplication of effort. This group met twice a year at different GIS lab locations across the state. They had “show and tell” sessions which were of instructional and educational value. On December 23, 1993 the first TNGIS users’ forum was held at the Garden Plaza in Murfreesboro. There were over 200 participants! The majority of participants were from the state of TN and a few from adjoining states.
From that first meeting TNGIS developed a few goals:
- Create a cohesive GIS community
- Improve communication between users and institutions
- Promote and facilitate data sharing
- Meet the needs of our customers through an interdisciplinary approach
- Promote professional development
- Promote data standardization
- Avoid duplication of effort.
