March Social

Hi GIS Community,

It is evident from the attendance at our monthly socials that there is a strong presence of geospatially like-minded people across metro Atlanta. Although, often times, where we live, work, and play is distant, we find time to meet up and spark up a good conversation. We share ideas, solutions, career opportunities, and friendly stories.

Furthermore, you may have noticed that MAGS socials are sometimes a collaboration with non-profit organizations, professional organizations, academic institutions, and private firms. Our connection is too strong for us to be dichotomous. Keeping with this belief, our next social is a joint one with the Georgia Urban & Regional Information Systems Association (GA URISA). We are heading back to one of our favorites, Manuel’s Tavern in the Poncey-Highland community.

On another note, some of you expressed interest in the sponsor of our February social, the Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA). (Thank you, GITA for supporting MAGS!) A little clarification about the organization:

“GITA is the professional association and leading advocate for anyone using geospatial technology to help operate, maintain, and protect the infrastructure, which includes organizations such as utilities, telecommunication companies, and the public sector. Through industry-leading conferences – along with research initiatives, chapters, membership, and other programs – GITA provides education and professional best practices.

The infrastructure is all fundamental services, activities, and operations that sustain our communities and way of life – from keeping the lights on to creating safe drinking water to responding to an emergency.”

You may visit gitasoutheast.org for more information about upcoming events and membership.

Thank you for taking the time to read this longer than usual message and we hope to see you at Manny’s on March 28th.

Lisa Douangchai and MAGS Coordinators
