MAPPS, NSPS Announce 2016 National Surveying, Mapping & Geospatial Conference Print E-mail
Written by MAPPS and NSPS   
Wednesday, 03 February 2016

Reston, VA, February 2, 2016 - MAPPS and National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) today announced registration is now open for the second annual National Surveying, Mapping, and Geospatial Conference, to be held March 14-18, 2016 at the Hilton Hotel in Crystal City (Arlington), VA.
 
Building on the success of last year's conference, this year's joint conference will again bring together professionals in the surveying, mapping and geospatial field to discuss public policy, business, professional practice and new technology.
 
Providing a forum for discussions on best practices, technology, issues and policies, the conference gives participants an opportunity to share information, knowledge and tools, as well as opens doors to new markets and facilitate collaboration on data acquisition, processing, applications and the use of new and emerging technology.
 
The conference will include the traditional MAPPS Federal Programs Conference (open to all attendees) March 15-16. Presentations by Federal agencies, the Obama Administration, and members of Congress will include briefings on programs, budgets, and requirements for the acquisition of geospatial services, data and products by contract from the private sector. MAPPS and NSPS members will visit some 200 Congressmen and Senators at the U.S. Capitol, advancing a common agenda of legislative issues that serve the public and engage the surveying and mapping community.
 
NSPS will host the finals of its annual Student Competition on Monday, March 14. The conference will also include a Mock Trial; a workshop on the newly revised ALTAsurvey standards; plenary sessions presented by individuals as well as NGS; an exhibit hall; social networking activities; and meetings of NSPS committees, its Board of Directors, and its annual General Membership Meeting.
 
"The feedback from last year's conference was phenomenal," said NSPS Executive Director Curtis W. Sumner. "This year the conference will be even more integrated between MAPPS and NSPS, and we are implementing improvements based on our experience and feedback from last year.

"Bringing together all disciplines within of the mapping, surveying and geospatial profession, and partnering with with federal agencies, as well as promoting the community in Congress, is what makes this conference unique and a must-attend event for MAPPS members, NSPS members, and other practitioners in the community," said MAPPS Executive Director John M. Palatiello.
