2023 Conference

We are happy to have the 2023 GISSIG in person this April 11, 2023, at the RIT Inn and Conference Center. We will be back to the old format of a morning and afternoon keynotes and 3 tracks of presentations throughout the day.

Keynote – Kurt Menke – Where Are We with Open-Source GIS Solutions in 2023?

Not only are we in a data rich period but a software rich period as well. The number of potential solutions can be overwhelming. The business models behind open-source GIS can be counterintuitive. To complicate things, we all have deadline after deadline to hit. As someone who cut my teeth on Esri solutions but have transitioned to using 100% open-source tools, I will provide a broad overview of the past, present, and future of open-source GIS. This will be done with examples and stories. Some of these will be from my new home, Copenhagen Denmark, and some from my days as a GIS consultant based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. There are some exciting tools out there and I hope to shed some light on the gems in open-source GIS.
