Jacksonville University GIS Conference Hosted at Jacksonville University

About the conference

The Jacksonville University GIS conference is a regional conference that highlights cutting edge research conducted by our students and faculty in the field of geographic information systems (GIS), with a focus on environmental issues.

Guided by a diverse group of faculty, the conference allows students to engage in the multifaceted process of research and presentation. Undergraduate students will connect with local and regional GIS organizations as well as law enforcement agencies and legal experts, design conference materials, and disseminate conference proceedings. In addition to being a critical part in operations, students will also highlight their own research in special sessions held throughout the conference and connect with industry leaders in their respective fields.
