Big Sky GeoCon will be held at the newly renovated Holiday Inn in historic downtown Missoula, Montana during the week of April 6-9, 2020. Nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, we have chosen Missoula as a key hub with both geographic and geological distinction in Montana. We anticipate a diverse group of geospatial technology users and professionals to be in attendance, representing: federal, state, tribal, local government, university/educational, nonprofit, and private business sectors. Big Sky GeoCon attendees embody a wide variety of professions including natural resources, agriculture, utilities, geospatial services, mining, and timber. The conference will cover a broader spectrum of content including analytics, data acquisition, data science, and how geospatial technology augments them all.
The 2020 Workshop Schedule is Now Live! Workshops are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, April 6 - April 7. View the Full List of Workshops

The 2020 Big Sky GeoCon Committee and the Montana Association of Geographic Professionals (MAGIP) invite you to participate in the Map/Poster Gallery at the 2020 Big Sky GeoCon.
The MAGIP Community has demonstrated many creative and insightful ways through maps, other graphical forms, and the web for getting their message out to their audience. If you have created posters or web maps that you are proud of and would like to share with a large group of GIS professionals, the Map Gallery would be a perfect opportunity to show them to the MAGIP community. We encourage you to enter your maps and web mapping applications to the Map Gallery, for display at this year’s conference! All entries will be evaluated for possible cash awards totaling $700 by judges during the conference.
Submission Deadline is February 14, 2020
