  The 3rd International Conference on Geospatial Information in Agriculture and Forestry will be Nov. 5-7, 2001, in Denver, Colo. The conference will bring scientists and technologists together with decision-makers and technology users within the agricultural and forestry communities to examine how they can work in concert to increase the responsiveness of geospatial information technologies to specific agricultural and forestry information needs.

Representatives from producer and trade associations, agribusiness and timber companies, insurance and financial institutions, government and multilateral agencies, universities, and technology companies are encouraged to attend and explore the emerging roles of geospatial information technology in agriculture and forestry.

Sessions will focus on the following general issues:
  • Making Measurements and Observations
