Suitable for managers who already have an existing GIS or for those wishing to implement one.

Goal:

Show managers what they are in for when they implement GIS at their shop.

Objectives:

Give substantial take-away reference material on these topics.

Have some fun.

Present material in a variety of formats so we don't bore the pants off these folks.

Draw as much as possible on real life material.
