NACIS 2015 has ended
Welcome to NACIS 2015 in Minneapolis! This is the annual meeting of the North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS). The theme for this year’s meeting is Mapping Interactions. See the schedule below and go to the NACIS website for more details.

The North American Cartographic Information Society, founded in 1980, is an organization comprised of specialists from private, academic, and government organizations whose common interest lies in facilitating communication in the map information community.

For those of you who were unable to attend the conference, or who couldn’t clone themselves to be at multiple talks at once, many slides are linked in the session descriptions below. Twin Cities local Kitty Hurley also put together this fantastic document summarizing much of what she saw at the meeting, so if slide decks aren’t linked, check out her notes.

Don't miss this year's opening reception! In celebration of International Map Year (2015-2016; mapyear.org), we've got several innovations that will make it worth your while. In addition to printed maps designed by students and professionals, we've also got a display of the 2015 maps from the Barbara Petchenik Children's World Map Drawing Competition from the US and Canada, and a map art exhibition entitled The Tangible Map Exhibit.

This year's map gallery also features a new digital maps component that we're very excited about. Attendees will need to come armed with a QR code reader app on their phones or tablets. If you don't have a smartphone, find a friend! You can download a QR code reader app here for the iOS or Android platforms.
