SharedGeo Sponors GITA

Recently, the SharedGeo Board of Directors voted unanimously to become a sponsor of the Geospatial Information Technology Association (GITA) of Auroa, Colorado.   As such, it became GITA’s first “Bronze sponsor”, a sponsorship level tailored for small businesses and nonprofits such as SharedGeo.  In light of this development, SharedGeo Executive Director Steve Swazee offered the following:

“Although GITA is often thought of as an organization where only the likes of ESRI, Autodesk, GE and other major players in the infrastructure and geospatial communities participate, SharedGeo appreciates the affordable opportunity to sponsor another nonprofit that has led the way on several issues of high importance to SharedGeo.  Among these is GITA’s eight-year-old effort to develop national awareness about the important interplay of geospatial technologies, infrastructure, and emergency response as embodied in their Geospatially Enabling Community Collaboration (GECCo) program.  Additionally, GITA’s development of a “Thought Leaders Symposium” is another area where we believe our interests align closely.  Structured to help America’s public-private “Decision Makers” gain in-depth understanding of the significant challenges that lie ahead as geospatial technology continues to develop and move ever more into the main stream, we believe this upcoming event will be very important for any leader who wants to effectively combine technology, policies and people in a way that ultimately creates a “best practice”.  As such, SharedGeo is a proud and committed sponsor of GITA.”
