#GISDay was a great success this year, at least for me. A chance to renew contacts I made last year, meet new ones and hang out with friends all day. Four of us piled into the truck and headed to Bloomington this morning from IUPUI Campus and descended upon the Wells Library at IU. Compared to last year, there was more energy, more talk, and a lot more going on. The big news is the LiDAR data that is in the final stages of post-processing and will be completed this year. This will be LiDAR coverage of the entire state of Indiana, giving everyone in the geospatial community a never-before-seen resolution and accuracy data set. Projects such as subsidence tracking from old mining sites, public health issues, and forestry applications, both urban and rural, are just a few of the projects overheard or talked about today.

Thanks to my traveling companions for making the trip to and from a lot more interesting, and to all those who took their time to talk with us and share the GIS experience.

Now if I can just scrape together the cash for a trip to the ESRI UC this summer I will be all set . . .
