GeoIgnite 2024 Conference Schedule Now Available Online!

It’s been five years since our last in-person GeoIgnite, so I am beyond thrilled to announce that the schedule for GeoIgnite 2024 is now available.

I’m looking forward to welcoming friends and colleagues to Ottawa for an immersive three-day journey filled with learning and engagement in all things geospatial.

Kicking Off with Workshops – May 13th
