The U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) National Geospatial Program (NGP) and the Office of Enterprise Information are pleased to announce The National Map (TNM) Users Conference, and the Geographic Information Science Workshop to be held May 10-13, 2011 in Lakewood, Colo.

This inaugural event will assemble a wide range of participants including scientists, managers and geospatial professionals from government, industry, academia and other organizations.

A goal of TNM UC is to share accomplishments and progress, acknowledge best practices, and exchange innovative ideas concerning The National Map in supporting science initiatives. The role of the GIS Workshop will be learning specific techniques for using GIS in support of science. Interactive dialog will be encouraged through panel and lightning sessions, poster presentations, workshops, and demonstrations.

Currently, the Conference Agenda Committee is encouraging the submission of abstracts for presentations, demonstrations, and posters.
