2010 Intermountain GIS Conference

"Challenges for a Changing World"

April 19-23, 2010

Bozeman, Montana

Thanks for a successful conference!

You are cordially invited to join us in Bozeman, MT, April 19-23, 2010, for the Annual Regional MAGIP Conference.

We are proud to be hosting the conference, we have lots of fun things planned and have expanded the conference to fill the entire week.  We've added more workshops and even some "mini-conferences" because we are all faced with so many different "Challenges in a Changing World"!!

This year's keynote speaker will be
William Wyckoff!
We have invited MSU Professor of Geography, William Wyckoff to be our featured speaker.

This year's conference banquet
will be at the
Museum of the Rockies!

The Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman is home to a world famous collection of dinosaur fossils and paleontology program. Dinosaur fossils are found in Montana rocks from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Dinosaur dig crew led by paleontologist and curator Jack Horner, science advisor to the Jurassic Park films, excavate fossils which are prepared and studied at the Museum in Bozeman. Some of the most famous dinosaurs in the world such as Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops, and Deinonychus can be seen on display.


You'll also have an opportunity to experience the award-winning changing exhibit, Survivor: Jamestown, where turning one corner in the maze can mean the difference between life or death. This interactive, immersive, and educational maze experience is set in the original 1607 Jamestown, Virginia colony. Presenting a glimpse into the struggles of the New World settlers, this exhibit engages visitors in a quest to survive the conditions that only 38 of the original 104 colonists were able to endure for one year. Melding historical accuracy and the complexities of real life and death decisions, Survivor: Jamestown delivers a truly unique and effective learning experience.
