This annual event is sponsored by the Committee on Geomatics and Surveying (COGS). It provides a venue for our TxDOT surveying and geomatics community to meet, learn from experts, increase professional knowledge, stay current with changing technologies and continue to improve the quality of the surveyor and surveying at TxDOT. This conference also provides an excellent forum for participants to learn or review surveying and legal subjects and become well-versed on TxDOT issues and business practices. In addition, this conference offers attendees an opportunity to share experiences, problems, ideas, insights and suggestions with fellow TxDOT surveyors.
This year, we are pleased to announce the addition of a GIS track. COGS has partnered with the newly formed GIS Work Group to offer training and presentations on a wide range of topics relevant to GIS users and surveyors at TxDOT.
Note: Contractors are welcome to attend the Tuesday afternoon session only.
