The event will focus on user and partner interaction using various formats: interactive panels, lightening sessions, poster presentations, workshops, as well as presentations and demonstrations. This gathering is designed to provide a relaxed, collaborative, and informative venue to explore the direction of The National Map, mapping trends, and GIS applications.
