FYI on parking for the KAM 2019: The Oread will provide a parking voucher at check-in to all conference attendees staying overnight. This voucher will cover the cost of parking and guests will not incur additional fees. Commuters can park in The Oread's lot for $5.

We've just added a link in our Information Exchange to the Kansas Regional Coordinate System (KRCS) documentation on the DASC website. For those who are unfamiliar with this, the KRCS is a low distortion coordinate system that was created at KDOT's request to eliminate the need for scale factors when converting from State Plane to ground coordinates. We are hopeful that KDOT will be able to present on this topic at KAM 2019, so stay tuned for details!
If you have resources that could be beneficial to our members, please feel free to submit them for consideration in the Information Exchange.

Do you believe that the annual KAM conference is only a few months away? As you know, the conference is when we get to recognize those people who do amazing things in GIS and KAM on a daily basis. The conference is also when we decide who our leadership will be for the following year. We need your help to identify those people! Nominations are open for awards and also for KAM board members. Please take a minute and nominate someone – links are below. Please remember – the deadline for nominations is August 1, 2019.
For conference rates and registration visit the General information page at https://www.kansasmappers.org/confgeninfo. Early bird registration ends September 13, 2019.
Pre-conference workshop registration is open as well. You must register for these classes separately from the general conference registration (a change from previous years). Check out our pre-conference workshop offerings and register at https://www.kansasmappers.org/preconference. Some classes have caps, so don’t delay in registering for these great hands-on learning opportunities!
Do you have a map for that? Or maybe an app?
Map Gallery submissions are now open for the 2019 KAM Conference! The Map Gallery is a great opportunity to showcase your unique or challenging mapping or web app creations. Check out the Map Gallery Guidelines and submit your Map or Web App here.
All submissions received by October 1, 2019 will be entered into a drawing for a gift card!
Our heartiest congratulations goes out to Abbey Marcotte, a graduate student at Kansas State University, for being selected to receive the 2019 John Cowan Memorial Scholarship! Abbey's master's project focuses on quantifying past and present mechanisms of how bedrock rivers erode laterally into channel banks. We look forward to hearing more about her research, either in an upcoming issue of Metes and Bounds or at KAM 2019 this fall. Congratulations, Abbey!
