Track Spotlight: Bookend Your Conference by Looking Both Ways

Posted By: Kim Meinert Events, Annual Conference,


Today we spotlight a workshop and track from the upcoming Annual Conference.  For all the latest details, check the Event Page and the News so you don't miss a thing.

We begin by looking deeper at one of our Wednesday afternoon workshops that examines the future direction of enterprise management.  Are you curious about AWS and the cloud?  Join the ever-knowledgeable Mark Korver from Amazon Web Services as he talks about open-source tools and serverless methods on AWS to serve maps using Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF (COG) and Spatial Temporal Asset Catalogs (STAC) indexes.  Impress your friends at The Opening later with all of your new knowledge!  I've sat in on some of Mark's sessions in the past, and I've always come away with a patiently, clearly explained new concept.

As we often are called to look forward to the next new thing, we are also often called to help document history.  Wrap up your conference in our Records Preservation track on Friday in the Guava Room from 10:30am - 12 pm.  First up is Andy Bartell of A&M Professional Services as he explains how he is helping Sheboygan County take the digital documents and manually extract specific spatial and tabular data from the images in order to make them more accessible to the public.  Next, we move south to Milwaukee County as their team of Lee Frederick, Kathy Bach, and Bridget Monahan talks about how they tackled non-recorded documents, what they learned from the process, and how they're going forward with other projects. Finally, we go state-wide with Christine Koeller and WisDOT as she describes what we can learn about our state from the collection of the iconic highway maps going all the way back to 1918.

As you can see, we are covering the full spectrum of topics at our conference and hope you enjoy many workshops and sessions sure to engage and inform.
