University’s status as an academic GIS leader helped attract event.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — In 1992, University at Buffalo graduate students brought top geographic information scientists to Western New York for what would become the first inaugural International Conference on Geoinformatics.

The conference led to the formation of the International Association of Chinese Professionals in Geographic Information Sciences (CPGIS).

Now, 25 years later, as UB continues to play a leading role advancing geographic information science worldwide, the conference returns to Western New York from Aug. 2-4, giving leading scientists a forum to discuss the latest trends in GIS.
