Economic development, data, GIS, and more June 23

Interested in data, mapping, GIS, economic development, social issues?   You should think about attending the DC GIS Steering Committee meeting Thursday, June 23 from 10:00 am - Noon at the Washington, DC Economic Partnership (1495 F St NW) and online.

You don't have to be a GIS expert to attend.   I've gone and learned lots of useful information and made contacts with people in and out of DC government who are willing to help or just generally good to know.

As you can see from the agenda (PDF), some important topics will be discussed including DC government's open data policy, the role of GIS in economic development, and highlights of the government's open data catalog.

More information, registration, and WebEx info.
