Top Trends Counties Need to Know – GIS

Join the National Association of Counties (NACo) for a webinar on “Top Trends Counties Need to Know About GIS,” on September 14, 2–3 PM EST.

Geographic information system (GIS) technology found its way into our living rooms through county briefings and dashboards during the COVID-19 pandemic. This spotlight resulted in a massive expansion of GIS use for economic recovery, increased transparency, vaccine distribution, addressing equity, broadband development, safer streets, parks and recreation management, civic engagement, and advancements in self-service government. But what is next? How are counties continuing to modernize their services through GIS? 

Featured speaker Richard Leadbeater with Esri, will highlight top patterns of GIS use across county government, legislative programs and stimulus packages impacting the uptake of GIS, and emerging GIS applications to watch in 2023.


Every Maryland county is a member of the National Association of Counties (NACo), and all Maryland county elected officials and staff are invited to attend the webinar. Registration is required.
