SCGIS 2015 Proceedings (2015 main)

Here is our first attempt ever to assemble the full content of every paper presented, and to also film and photograph every presentation. With 4 concurrent tracks over 2 days in 3 different locations this was a real workout for Dean Walton and Charles Convis, so we apologize in advance for missing sessions (black font). A more thorough job is being planned for the 2016 conference. The videos are in iphone/podcast format and will play automatically in firefox, safari and some versions of chrome. IE may require flash plugin. (photos: charles convis)

The SCGIS Board and Conference Committee would especially like to thank all those authors (indicated by the happy face icon) who granted their permission to share their talks with the wider SCGIS Community. It is our international members who constantly remind us of the global scope of our struggle and the importance of sharing what we know with those working in conditions where skills and knowledge are harder to come by.

NOTE: "SCGIS" profile links work if you have logged into SCGIS in the past day
