Membership and Networking


GeoSpatial San Diego

Geospatial San Diego is a networking group for people with careers and interests in the geospatial industry in San Diego county. The geospatial ecosystem in San Diego is robust but fragmented, touching various aspects of government (local, state, and federal), academia, and industry in powerful ways. The focus of this networking group is to bring together geospatial professionals from all corners of this community in fun, social settings to share information, help build relationships, and strengthen the social fabric of our San Diego geospatial community.
