2014 GIS/CAMA Technologies Conference Program Details Unveiled

Des Plaines, IL (November 5, 2013) -- URISA and the International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) are pleased to announce the program details, registration and sponsorship opportunities for the 18th Annual GIS/CAMA* Technologies Conference, to be held February 24-27, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront in Jacksonville, Florida.

GIS/CAMA 2014 will begin on Monday, February 24 with three comprehensive full-day workshops:

  • GIS Strategic Planning
  • Introduction to Valuation and Spatial Analysis
  • Interpretation of Real Property Descriptions - presented in cooperation with the Florida Association of Cadastral Mappers

From "Leveraging Parcel Data Outside the Assessment Office" to "Defending Appraisals with Business Intelligence Data" and a panel session on "Statewide Parcel Data Standardization", the program is full of important content. The program features 18 concurrent sessions within three outstanding education tracks:

  • Get It Done: At a time when budgets and staff sizes are dwindling, getting your work done better and more efficiently is critical. Presentations in this track are designed to give you ideas for improving processes from field data collection to data integrity.
  • Run the Numbers: Accurate and equitable valuations are the cornerstone of an assessment office. Learn new ways of analyzing data and take away the lessons learned from statistical models that are being used all over the world.
  • Serve It Up: Public confidence can rise and fall based on effective sharing and communication of property data and values with taxpayers, businesses, and other entities. Let peers show you how they have stepped up to the challenge and changed the ways or methods they utilize, display, and communicate data.

The conference is pleased to feature three important keynote/plenary sessions:

Tuesday Keynote
Washed Away: Lessons Learned from the 1,000-Year Rain in Boulder County, Colorado
When extraordinary disaster strikes, even the best emergency plans may need rethinking. Staff from the Boulder County Assessor’s Office share lessons learned from a 1,000-year rain that led to cataclysmic flooding and forever changed the landscape, business processes, and lives of residents in Boulder County.

Wednesday Plenary Session
St. Johns River Water Management District Land Assessment Project: a GIS-based Analysis
Learn how GIS is being used to review water management district properties and determine if inventory can be reduced or repurposed based on “overall conservation value."

Thursday Closing Plenary
How Unmanned Systems Can Help with Aerial Imagery
Unmanned systems will never completely replace manned aerial imagery. But in very specific instances, the unmanned system is the right tool.

The opportunity to learn about new products by visiting with GIS/CAMA exhibitors and sponsors is always an important part of this conference. Thanks in advance to Esri - Platinum Sponsor and Thomson Reuters - Bronze Sponsor and a number of exhibitors who have already reserved a booth space (note that discounts are available until December 31).

Complete conference details are posted  online. Discounted early registration fees are offered until January 6, 2014.
