The 2018 Annual SHRUG GIS Workshop will provide a forum for sharing the latest GIS related technology, research and development activities. We bring engaging industry leaders from all around the southeastern United States, into a format which combines thought provoking talks, informative demonstrations, and lively, hands-on labs. This workshop will showcase ongoing GIS efforts in both government and private sector organizations, and will cover all levels of experience from beginner to expert. Not to mention that the venue- and even the food!- are an experience in themselves. This is a GIS conference with a difference.
