    This week A Very Spatial Podcast is sponsored by ESRI.

    Ocean Globe, a new book by ESRI Press, addresses the recent progress in seafloor documentation, bathymetry, and related ocean and marine mapping projects. The book’s contributors show how GIS and collaborative mapping are used to share data and information and advance the science of bathymetry. For more information, visit www.esri.com/esripress.

    1. re: GITA joins GISCI. So, until now I could not have used GITA conferences for my points for a GISP?

    2. As long as you have documentation for an appropriate conference presentation/attendance you can claim the points, but I think that with the MOU/A there will be a stream lining of the ‘prove-it’ documentation portion of the GISP application.

      The more important point of the partnership in my eyes (as a GISP) is the expanding acceptance WITHIN the industry of the GISP certification. As with most things, if people on the inside accept something, those on the outside will be more comfortable with it when they find it.

      On an tangential note, I think (hope?) that when we get a final set of job descriptions/titles from the Dept of Labor, we will see a re-envisioning of both the GISP and the ASPRS certifications to speak more directly to what is expected of GIS practitioners. And even then it will have to remain loose enough to fit non-DOL geospatial professionals. Even 2 sentences I can cover multiple sides of the certify or not to certify debate 🙂

    3. GITA conference attendance, GIS presentations, and GIS conference proceedings have always counted towards GISP points. Almost all of my points came from participation in GITA events over the past several years.

      The job descriptions from DOL are definitely expected to contribute to GISCI’s certification process.

      There’s alot of wisdom in that statement, I can think of many examples where that is a self evident truth
