First International Conference/Workshop on Integrating Geographic Information Systems and Environmental Modeling

Second International Conference/Workshop on Integrating Geographic Information Systems and Environmental Modeling

The second international conference/workshop on integrating GIS and environmental modeling was held September 26-30, 1993, in Breckenridge, Colorado. It built systematically on the first meeting held in 1991 in Boulder, but its program allowed intensive examination of progress over the past two years, and gave greater emphasis to the potential for GIS to be an integrating mechanism for environmental modeling. Three major issues were addressed: environmental databases and mapping, environmental modeling linked to GIS, and building environmental models with GIS.

David Stoms of UCSB reflected on the conference for UPDATE: "Presentations were heavily weighted towards physical process models in hydrology and meteorology, based on differential equations. One of the highlights was a plenary presentation by Craig McRae of MIT, whose videotape of air pollution movements through time beautifully integrated the multiple objectives of the conference: modeling, visualization, and linking science with policy. The presentation made the outputs from a complex three-dimensional model readily understandable by nonexperts in a way that a series of two-dimensional maps never could."

Third International Conference/Workshop Integrating Geographic Information Systems and Environmental Modeling

The Third International Conference/Workshop on Integrating GIS and Environmental Modeling was held January 21-25, 1996, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. A call for papers, posters, and demonstrations was issued in Spring 1995.
