Here is our first attempt ever to assemble the full content of every paper presented, and to also film and photograph every presentation. With 60 papers in 4 concurrent tracks over 2 days in 3 different locations this proved impossible for the 2 volunteers,Dean Walton and Charles Convis, and trying to follow up with speakers after the fact to collect powerpoints & permissions didn't work, despite the motivational happy faces used below. In the end, we were able to get about half the talks. What we learned was used in 2016 to do a better job. The videos are in iphone/podcast format and will play automatically in firefox, safari and some versions of chrome. IE may require flash plugin. (photos: charles convis)
The SCGIS Board and Conference Committee would especially like to thank all those authors (indicated by the happy face icon) who granted their permission to share their talks with the wider SCGIS Community. It is our international members who constantly remind us of the global scope of our struggle and the importance of sharing what we know with those working in conditions where skills and knowledge are harder to come by.
NOTE: "SCGIS" profile links work if you have logged into SCGIS in the past day
HAPPY FACE for AUTHORS WHO HAVE GIVEN PERMISSION, THANKS!
