MidAmerica GIS Consortium

We believe geospatial technology creates value far reaching from ourselves. We are a network of dedicated leaders in the fields of mapmaking, location services, & data management.

WHAT WE DO

Our largest event is the biennial symposium (conference) that we hold in even years. Each symposium is nearly a week long educational event with workshops, sessions, networking, exhibitors and much more. View more info on this year's conference. 

But, did you also know that we sponsor our state's conferences and provide platforms for community engagement?

We provide grants for organizations that need assistance.

Lastly, we are firm believers that education breeds success - so we work hard to bring you webinars, workshops, and other educational opportunities in our region. For more info on those, check out the Programs and Events pages. 

NATIONAL COORDINATION

Many of our MAGIC leadership are also involved in national organizations as well, and MAGIC has formed lasting relationships with other organizations.  This coordination creates symbiotic relationships that guide the national conversations and provides a platform for locals and states to understand why it is important to have a voice.


COALITION OF GEOSPATIAL ORGANIZATIONS (COGO)

MAGIC is proud to be an Advisory Organization to the Coalition of Geospatial Organizations (COGO).

The Coalition of Geospatial Organizations (COGO) is a group of geospatial organizations representing diverse sectors of the geospatial community.   The stakeholder groups that make up COGO speak with one voice wherever possible on geospatial data and policy issues. In accordance with its operating procedures, COGO only takes public policy positions with a unanimous vote of its member organizations.

The Coalition of Geospatial Organizations (COGO) is a coalition of 13 national professional societies, trade associations, and membership organizations in the geospatial field, representing more than 170,000 individual producers and users of geospatial data and technology.
