RALEIGH, NC — The use of geospatial technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) has been growing at an ever increasing rate as more and more organizations realize its power. Whether you are maintaining parcels of land for tax assessment, infrastructure assets for utility systems, or roadways for the Department of Transportation, GIS provides a powerful range of management and analysis tools.

To help the growing community of GIS users in North Carolina, the Institute for Transportation Research and Education Research (ITRE) at North Carolina State University has partnered with eGIS Associates (eGIS), a recognized leader in providing Geospatial Services, to offer a variety of GIS Training courses.
