This roundtable conversation is an opportunity for a free-ranging discussion with other geographic information system (GIS) users in the cultural resource management field. Review changes in the industry and updates in the ArcGIS platform. Pose questions to baffling issues and contribute a case study or story map. Learn about the latest GIS tools, new data portals, and upcoming technologies with potential connections to GIS. Consider ways to work more effectively with non-GIS users and promote the use of GIS.
Participants will receive logistics information by email on how to access the webinar using the Zoom meeting format at least a week prior to the training.
Participants will be invited to submit case studies, story maps, and questions in advance.
