GISPro Ignite 2014

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is an Ignite Event? Ignite is a presentation style limited to 5 minutes (20 slides auto-advanced at 15 seconds each). Presenters do not have control of the advancement of slides and must tune their presentation to that timing. 
Lightning talks, frivolity, and education! Attend URISA’s GIS-Pro IGNITE session for fast-paced presentations, with some entertainment mixed in. You’ll be glad you did!
