Capital Region

The PAMAGIC Capital Region Activity Group is a great group for people living and working in Harrisburg and the Susquehanna Valley.  The group is partnering with the Harrisburg GIS Meetup hosted by Harrisburg University.  The Meetup group holds monthly meetings on the 4th Thursday of the month. Many of our members also participate in the yearly Central PA GIS Day held at the Midtown campus of Harrisburg Area Community College in November.  We are also looking for other ways to connect GIS professionals in this area.

If you would like more information about the Capital Region Activity group, e-mail Patrick McKinney or Albert Sarvis.

The Harrisburg GIS Meetup group held it’s first meeting in March of 2016 and by August of 2016 had accumulated 30 members and settled on a set of prioritized topics to be presented and discussed.  The full list of remaining topics is shown below.  So far we have discussed Drone Mapping (October 2016), Humanitarian Mapping (Event held in November 2016), Real Estate Site Selection (January 2017), Customizing ArcGIS Desktop with Python (February 2017) and Using Survey 123 (March 2017).  We hope you will join the group and even offer to contribute.  New presentation ideas are welcomed!  Currently there are 91 members in the Meetup group.
