3-2-1 Launch, 21st Century Kennedy Space Center GIS

Join Glenn Walters, our closing keynote speaker, as he takes us on a “spatial” mission sharing his insight on GIS work at the Kennedy Space Center. With the advent of commercial space, the Kennedy Space Center has been evolving from a single launch program into a multi-tenant, multi-use spaceport.  To serve the future needs of the KSC user-base, GIS will also need to evolve.
