The Geospatial Information & Technology Association has a new mobile-friendly website through the efforts of the association’s leaders as well as of Civica Associations, Conferences & Exhibitions, which provides headquarters services for GITA.
The website launched Dec. 1 at the same URL as the previous website, www.gita.org.
The new site is responsive, meaning it provides an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices — phones, tablets, notebooks and desktops. It also features many new members-only communication channels, including association-wide Community Forums and Discussion Circles tailored to various geospatial interests.
As the association indicated today:
This website will help us keep our membership connected. With social networking tools for staying in touch and a space dedicated to sharing materials, our members can form new, professional connections with fellow colleagues. Member groups can be formed based on geographic region, issues, etc. Professionals say that one of the biggest reasons they join their association is the opportunity to collaborate and network with fellow members. We now have these wonderful tools to help with just that. You’ll find more information and instructions on the website about how to participate in our social community.
Over the next few weeks, Civica will work to get individual and organizational members signed in for the first time to the new site.
