Special Interest Groups

Special Interest Groups – or SIGs – are communities within a larger organizations with a shared interest in advancing a specific area of knowledge, learning or technology. Every year, the GIS-T Symposium supports SIG meetups, both technical and non-technical. SIGs are a great way to network with your peers and learn something new.  So take advantage of having a community of like-minded colleagues in all the same place and reserve time to:

  • Form or join a small group of peers to explore a shared topic of interest
  • Bring together federal and state partners from across the country
  • Present on a topic that didn’t fit on the Symposium agenda
  • Show a documentary
