Several of our employee owners attended the Coastal Geotools conference in Charleston, SC. This conference is the largest conference for coastal resource managers focusing on data, tools, technology, and other geospatial solutions coastal managers need to serve their communities. With many of our staff and potential employee prospects in attendance, we provided a bronze sponsorship and staffed a booth to discuss our company and project examples with the coastal management and geospatial community. Several staff presented their projects including offshore wind site suitability modeling, and ocean economy and offshore planning data development. In addition, staff provided tool demonstrations during the Tool Showcase. 

This conference enables our staff to learn new skills and approaches from their peers, and expand their networks within the geospatial community.
