WVAGP at the 2023 Eastern Panhandle GIS User Group Meeting In Martinsburg
By: Marvin A. Davis, President
I was able to participate in this year's 2023 EPan Meeting at the Purple Iris in Martinsburg, on behalf of WVAGP. This meeting ended up being a full room and full of content, too. I really enjoyed the amount of energy from the professionals and the students who presented, and it made me hopeful for not only future EPan meetings, but also for meetings with WVAGP membership as a whole. I shared our efforts as WVAGP and teased the pending announcement for the 2024 WV Geospatial Conference (WVGeoCon) to attendees as we have big plans ahead. Stay tuned on that front!
I did snap some photos, but I have to apologize first to the morning session presenters. I like to think I am a competent geographer and cartographer, but I am definitely not a photographer! I was too engaged in watching presentations and forgot to take photos until the afternoon sessions. So, please enjoy some sights from the 2023 EPan. Thank you for having us!
If you are curious or even interested in starting your own regional GIS user group in other parts of the state, message me!
