GIS Day is tomorrow! Looking forward to another great event. The weather has cleared up, which allows us to keep everything outdoors (we did have a back-up plan), but we are looking forward to another special event! We anticipate over 500 attendees, and cannot wait to share “The Power of Location” with everyone.
GIS Day 2012 is fast approaching! I’m looking forward to another great event this year.
Here are important documents for everyone planning on attending.

How are you preparing for your big interview for your first (or fifth) GIS job? What hard questions should you expect? Directions Magazine shares 20 probing questions to use for practice.
In 2004, Directions Magazine published an article called the Top 15 Interview Questions. They were generic questions any hiring manager might ask. Eight years later we want to update those with questions that are more specific to the field and go beyond button-pushing. Editor in Chief Joe Francica, Executive Editor Adena Schutzberg and principal of ENTCHEV.com, Atanas Entchev, compiled the questions they might ask of candidates. We’ve not separated them out for more or less technical positions or entry level or advanced ones; we feel most are applicable to the full range of positions.
As of this morning we have 48 people registered for our GIS Day training track, so we have shut down training track sign-up page.
Most of our classes will be packed, with 2 people per computer. For County staff, the eGIS Program will be providing additional training opportunities over the next few months.
The training schedule is below.
