GISPro2016 has ended
GIS-Pro 2016: URISA’s 54th Annual Conference
October 31-November 3, 2016
Westin Harbour Castle - Toronto, Ontario

Geospatial information is everywhere, at everyone’s fingertips and URISA as an organization has been at the forefront for the past  50 years, through global technology and social shifts.  In the time it took you to pull up the description of this conference, perhaps on your phone, tablet or laptop, you have already considered the conference location, investigated the good eats and conference events, and mapped all of your indoor and outside activities.  URISA connects members and partners with the educational, networking and collaboration resources that professionals need to evolve geospatial tools and solutions that respond to real places in real time.

Join the GIS Community in Toronto, Ontario for a powerful, collective exchange of GIS knowledge!

Professional Planners: Be sure to note the workshops and sessions that have been approved for AICP-CM credits. Nearly 50 AICP-CM credits were approved for this year’s program!

Creating an attendee profile within Sched DOES NOT REGISTER you for the conference or specific workshops. You must register for the conference here.

Note: If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Westin Harbour Castle saying that there is now a cheaper rate... just hang up. It is a scam.

Monday, October 31, 2016 - 1:00 - 5:00 PM
 Tripp Corbin, GISP, CFM, MCP, CIT+, President, eGIS Associates, Inc., Dacula, Georgia, United States

Jochen Albrecht, Phd, Hunter College, New York, New York, United States

Are you thinking about taking the GISP exam? Are you wondering how the exam process works? Have you come up with a strategy for studying that increases your chance of successfully passing? Successful exam taking requires knowledge about exam topics, knowing how to interpret questions, knowing how to focus study time, and knowing how to manage your time during the exam. This half-day workshop helps you develop those skills.

This workshop was developed independent of the GISCI Geospatial Core Technical Knowledge Exam® and will not, for integrity purposes, address the specific content of the exam. You will, however, learn about the exam structure, the process for taking the exam and how to obtain your results. You will also learn a variety of study and exam taking tips.

Particular focus will be given to reviewing the knowledge areas that will be covered on the exam and on where to find resources that can help you learn about those things that you may not already know. During the workshop you will have the opportunity to take a practice exam. Workshop instructors will then discuss the answers to the practice questions and offer guidance on how to successfully respond to similar questions when you take the exam.
