While primarily an academic conference, there is strong interest on the part of government agencies, private companies, non-profits, and the general public. Representatives from various UW system campuses were also present.

This was the sixth annual Geospatial Summit. The event began at 11am with Dr. Nick Chrisman’s keynote address followed by thirteen, 20-minute sessions by faculty, staff, students, and members of the state’s geospatial community. The event concluded at 3pm with Dr. David Cowen’s keynote address.
