IMAGIN: Improving Michigan's Access to Geographic information Networks.
With our name in mind, for the first time in many years, IMAGIN has totally rebuilt our website. Since 1991, and officially since 1993, IMAGIN has existed as a professional development organization committed to providing opportunities for its members to network with professionals who are using, creating, or maintaining spatial resources within Michigan. IMAGIN serves as a crossroads for spatial information users/developers at all levels of government, business, and non-profit organizations by providing its members partnership opportunities to recognize, share, and create spatial data resources for both traditional and new applications.
Keeping our long standing focus in mind, but desiring to find ways to improve our connection with our members and to the GIS community in Michigan at large, the IMAGIN Board of Directors have been working hard to embrace the changes that the GIS community in Michigan faces. With the launch of this new website, we are taking the opportunity to introduce you to the new face of IMAGIN.
We hope you find the new website useful and full of information you can put to use. We appreciate your patience as some sections are still be developed and updated.
IMAGIN is proud to announce that it's annual Student Poster & Paper Competition is returning for 2015. The competition is scheduled for Thursday, April 2, 2015 and will be located in Constitution Hall in Lansing, Michigan. The SPPC team has released the competition timeline and the even flier.
