The Award was presented to Cass County & the City of Fargo <br />for collaboration in GIS projects. The awards were presented to user sites <br />around the world in recognition of their outstanding work in the GIS field. We <br />were selected to receive this prize from over 100,000 user sites worldwide <br />which is quite an honor. <br /> <br />The conference was attended by more than 12,000 GIS professional <br />from around the world and was an excellent opportunity to learn about new <br />technologies and collaborate with other GIS users. I was able to attend an all <br />day pre-conference seminar on developing address management systems <br />using GIS solutions. This was an excellent seminar with many useful <br />resources where a number of speakers presented their GIS solutions to <br />common addressing problems in various organizations. This was a good time <br />to learn about best practices. <br /> <br />Over 300 technical workshops were available during the week on ESRI <br />software and more than 1,000 user presentations on challenges and <br />successes. The exhibit pavilion provided the opportunity to talk with <br />hundreds of vendors and solution providers about project objectives. The <br />ESRI showcase consisted of representatives from software companies who <br />offered advice on technical issues & planning. <br /> <br />Overall this is an excellent conference that provides the opportunity to <br />talk to peers in similar organizations who all face similar issues in GIS <br />implementation. <br /> <br />Kay Anderson <br />
