SCGIS 2018 Proceedings (2018 main)

dThis is our fourth attempt to assemble the full content of every paper presented, and to also film and photograph every presentation. We give each presentation its own dedicated page & URL so speakers can easily link to it from their other resume or profiile pages like SCGIS or GEONET. We are also happy to helplink speakers' dedicated proceedings pages back to their SCGIS or GEONET member profiles. We are also exploring options that will let speakers directly edit their own proceedings page to update their powerpoint, contact info, photo, or abstract, as well as to add on their own any additional links or resources they'd like to include. Announcements on that are expected by Nov 13. 2018

Logins: All links below take you to the dedicated speaker profile page which is public. Access to the actual film and powerpoint files however is restricted to current SCGIS members only. Go to this scgis.org member page for the login and password info. You only have to enter it once and your browser will remember from then on.

FINAL NOTES TO THE PRESENTERS:
1. Optional Links: If you don't see any and want them, please email me a link to whatever professional profile pages that you'd like to use. We can also add additional links to your other projects or published work, if you wish to include these on your speaker profile page, email: ecp2 at esri.com

3. Special Requests: Several people asked for special arrangements or more time to get publishing approval. We believe we've accounted for all of these requests. If you see your presentation and want some changes or special arrangements please let me know asap at ecp2 at esri.com

The SCGIS Conference Committee would again like to thank all our presenters, willing 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.
