Register Online for $20

Geospatial technology has continually advanced over the past several years and high quality multi-dimensional mapping is now more available to a broad audience. There is growing interest in LiDAR and related multi-dimensional technology for mapping natural disasters, forestry, flood mapping, and much more.

The 3 day conference will be a gathering of geospatial practitioners, educators, and researchers from the public and private sectors, universities and the community at large. We welcome anyone with an interest in maps.

Registration are being kept low to encourage participation from as wide an audience as possible. Registration to attend all 3 days is only $20 for general audience ($10 for students).

Attendees can also opt to become a CCA at a reduced rate for the remainder of the year, as part of the conference registration. General information about membership: https://cca-acc.org/membership

CCA is organizing an online map gallery including entries from this year’s student mapping competitions, and much more.

We hope you can join us and , and participate in this year’s online conference as we explore LiDAR and other mapping techniques.
