Summer 2023 Save the Date

GISCO is coming to the San Juan National Forest this summer! Join us for an off the grid training and meetup July 26-28, 2023, camping available at the Chris Park Group Campsite, located on Hwy 550 north of Durango, CO.



Training details will be available soon!


GIS Colorado meetups are open to the public and are a great opportunity to hear interesting geospatial topics from a wide range of GIS professionals across the state.
Interested in giving a presentation? Submit an abstract to be included on the Meetup agenda.  Please note, the summer meet up tends to be off the grid. Please plan your talks to be hands on or easy to share in a non-electronic way. There will also be no virtual presentations or attendance at the summer meetup.
