Submit your KAM presentation abstract by Friday, May 31, 2019.
These are great topics to present and discuss with your peers at the Kansas Association of Mappers Conference from October 15-18, 2019 in Lawrence! The deadline for abstracts is quickly approaching, so don’t be late. Presenting is open to all, regardless of membership status with KAM.
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!
KAM is pleased to share the news that Processor-GIS will be providing lunch to all of our participants in the May 30th class "Hands-On Experience with Editing and Layouts in ArcGIS Pro"! Thank you to KAM member Justin Hawley for sponsoring this event.

This hands on class will cover editing and layouts in ArcGIS Pro. The class will be divided into two sections. The morning section will discuss connecting to data and editing workflow. Topics include: adding data, displaying the attribute table, adding fields, creating new features, and feature templates. The afternoon section will discuss layouts. Topics include: creating new layouts, adding and managing elements, managing the data view from the layout, bookmarks, custom symbology, and export options. This class is suitable for beginner to advanced users. Some exposure to ArcGIS Pro before the class will be extremely helpful to get the most benefit from class materials. All participants need access to ArcGIS Pro via laptop and to make sure it is licensed properly.
Abstracts are now being accepted to present at the annual KAM Conference! Anyone interested in presenting must submit an application online using the form available under the Conference menu above.
Applications are due by 11:59 pm on Friday, May 31, 2019.
