4th Caribbean GIS Conference Update

Things are warming up for the URISA 4th Caribbean GIS Conference in the Cayman Islands this month. Over 170 persons from 22 countries have already signalled that they will be attending. There will be some 19 companies in the Exhibitors Hall - (spaces are sold out) - so it will be a good chance to speak directly with software representatives, solutions providers, satellite imagery agents, hardware suppliers, surveying associations, etc.. There will be a software training course and three pre-conference workshops for those who have signed up; ~79 conference papers by presenters from around the Caribbean and abroad in the main educational sessions, keynote addresses by two distinguished speakers from ESRI and the UK OS and a panel discussion. See here and here for more details.
