    The Geospatial Discoveries Conference is an interactive and dynamic virtual experience with a wide range of out-of-the-box activities and technology used to explore the world. Led by staff at the Washington College Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Program, this four-day conference gives participants a practical introduction to the systems that connect satellites, drones, data analysts, mobile apps, and websites in modern life. 

    Experience the power of remote sensing through a presentation of a 46-foot research vessel and see how sunk shipwrecks can be detected even when completely buried in mud. Learn to create your own spatial data using mobile applications.  Build out your experience using cutting-edge data visualization tools to embed maps, applications and multimedia data into an online story!
