2021 AK Virtual Geospatial Gathering

March 1-4, 2021

The goal of this event is to provide a platform for the Alaskan geospatial community to share work, interact with relevant professionals, participate in learning, receive updates, and build community during this pandemic induced time of physical isolation and distancing.

Thanks to our enthusiastic geospatial community, we received enough content for three full days plus a half day of Esri technical sessions. The Esri sessions will be held the afternoon of Monday, March 1, followed by community presentations Tuesday through Thursday, March 2-4.

The AAUG/URISA annual meeting will be held virtually during the lunch break on Wednesday, March 3. Other groups are encouraged to meet during other breaks. Please contact the planning committee to add it to the schedule.


The event will be held virtually via GoToWebinar and it will be free to attend. Please register for each day individually.

We have opted for a grassroots, no-cost gathering this year so there will be no sponsorship opportunities. Participating organizations such as AAUG, URISA-Alaska, ASPRS, ASPLS, UAA Geomatics Student Association, etc. would likely welcome any contribution you may be inclined to put forth to support their activities.

Please consider making a monetary contribution to AAUG and help support this effort to keep our geospatial community connected virtually and in person. Donations to Alaska Arc User Group are allocated towards our operating costs, live meeting lunches and refreshments, conference prizes, and scholarships. Thank you.
