URISA’s GIS Hall of Fame

GISCorps inducted into URISA’s GIS Hall of Fame during GIS-Pro 2020

Since inception, GISCorps has given the GIS professional the opportunity to effectively make a difference – to make a better world through the use of one’s own special skills and expertise. Volunteer-guided by a Core Committee and implemented through its many volunteers, GISCorps continues to have an impact on the GIS field, the profession, and the social benefit of the volunteers’ efforts. It is an organization making significant and original contributions to the development and application of GIS concepts, and to the GIS profession and the careers of the individual volunteers. And as stated in one of the testimonials, URISA’s GISCorps exemplifies “…vision, leadership, perseverance, community-mindedness, professional involvement, and ethical behavior.” – URISA’S GIS Hall of Fame web page
