SE03 will not be from the ASA-CSSA-SSSA conference since I didn’t get any usable audio (what I have is good content, just not good quality). Instead we will be hosting our first avsp GIS Day podcast for release on the 15th or early on the 16th. We hope to cover a bit of an overview […]

I am skipping out on sessions right now, but I will head back in a few. Salt Lake City is still a nice town (I was here in March for the NRCS cultural resource specialists meeting). The conference seems a little smaller than I expected since it is three groups at one conference. I am […]
