I’m in Orlando this week for the AWRA Spring 2010 Specialty Conference, “GIS and Water Resources VI.” This biannual series always is a big hit. Jack Dangermond of ESRI gave the keynote talk, which previewed a new working model for sharing GIS water data on the web. I’m working with Jack and the conference committee to get a version of this talk into JAWRA along with some commentary by other panelists.
This series of conferences seems to go in cycles. Two years ago in San Mateo, most of the talks seemed to me, “Here’s what we’re going to do.” This year, there’s more “Here’s what we did” papers. I’ve already seen over a dozen talks and posters where I will encourage the authors to submit JAWRA papers. I think our readers will see some fine work coming out of this conference.
For now, I’m back to work in the House of the Mouse.
