Alabama Association of Tax Administrators Conference

It’s time for another AATA conference at the beach! G-Squared has attended this AATA summer conference for many years now. Over the years we have established strong relationships with many AATA members. These relationships mean a lot to us, and the AATA events play a big role in helping us do so. We can’t wait to hit that coast line and we hope to see many of you down there as well.

As a reminder, G-Squared hosts the AATA’s Solomon Tisdale Memorial Golf Tournament every year. We’re expecting good weather that day so don’t forget your clubs!

G-Squared was glad to attend the 2017 TNGIC conference in Knoxville, Tennessee. The conference had an exceptional turnout in attendance, great keynote speakers, and an all-around friendly crowd. With a good mixture of students, GIS professionals and vendors you just can’t find a better place to learn more about maps!

Here is a picture taken at the corn hole tournament. This has been a TNGIC tradition for a few years now.

TNGIC April 26-27

G-Squared will be in Chattanooga, Tennessee this April 26-27. The event will be the annual TNGIC (Tennessee Geographic Information Council) conference. Tennessee is a progressive state that understands the importance of geospatial data. These types of events have proven very useful in spreading the latest GIS news, tool, and processes which aid the state in so many ways. The G-Squared team is excited for this event and we hope to see you there! For more information on this event please visit http://www.tngic.org/2017-conference.htm or call our office.

P.S. If you’re a golf enthusiast, there will be a scramble on the 25th

Overview of the 2017 MAPPS and NSPS Federal Programs Conference

G-Squared is a part of a lobbying group known as MAPPS. Every year this group will hold one of its conferences in Washington D.C. to propose changes to members of congress. Sadly, the geospatial community often goes un-noticed in many facets of society. This group has changed this by giving our industry more of a presence on the Hill. The main points we touched on this year were; Private Sector Utilization, FEMA, NFIP & Flood Map Reform, and The Role of Geospatial Data in Building America’s Infrastructure. These key points are explained further below.

  • Private Sector Utilization – The geospatial community is an industry in which the federal government can use for a wide range of purposes. With the rapid growth of technology, that range is becoming wider every day. One of the reasons MAPPS and the NSPS was in Washington was to show support and promote The Freedom From Government Competition Act (FFGCA). This act was proposed by Representative John Duncan (TN) and Senator John Thune.
  • FEMA, NFIP & Flood Map ReformThis point was to show the importance of the 3DEP program. The NFIP is $24 Billion dollars in debt. The average age of elevation data from the USGS is on average 35 years. With more accurate elevation data, flood insurance premiums will inevitably drop due to having current data to work off of.
  • The Role of Geospatial Data in Building America’s Infrastructure – The surveying and geospatial industry has played a key role in infrastructure. MAPPS was there to make congress aware of how important an infrastructure bill would be to the growth of America.

G-Squared will be attending the MAPPS 2017 winter conference in Palm Harbor (Tampa), Florida on January 13-17. MAPPS is an association of mapping and photogrammetry firms and was established in 1982. The events hosted by MAPPS are among the best when it comes to new information relating to the mapping industry.
