    SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
    TO SUPPORT INDIVIDUAL NEURISA EVENTS


    This year, until further notice, our events are planned to take place virtually. These will include:

    1. The 12th annual NEURISA Day conference to be held in the Fall. Last year’s virtual conference had over 250 participants and included notable GIS leaders such as Jack Dangermond of Esri, the National Geographic Society, geospatial professionals, and educators across New England.

    2. Mappy Hours are NEURISA members’ most favorite event, hosted throughout New England several times a year. Members love it because the event is free, local, offers informal networking, provides idea sharing and conveniently scheduled right after work. This event offers a chance to thank and showcase the Sponsor with a shout-out, brief overview, and company provided swag as prizes (if requested by the Sponsor).

    3. URISA Certified Workshops are a way to further your skills and education, learn about new technologies, as well as earn valuable credits towards a GISP certification.

    4. Mapathons with Humanitarian OpenStreetMap and MapSwipe Competitions give our community a chance to support global humanitarian mapping initiatives at a central online group to socialize, learn, and meet other geospatially-minded people. It is also a great way to engage with local educators as a way to promote GIS and support teachers with geospatial learning.

    5. Donate raffle prizes such as company swag, electronic gift cards, access to an event you are hosting, or anything else that helps to promote your services. Members of our events enjoy the friendly competition and raffle selection bragging rights. Sponsors provide a wide range of products like chocolates, a company branded hat, or a drone!

About Our Events
Mappy Hours

Have an idea for a project, but don't know where to find data? Want to present a lightning talk to your peers in a relaxed, informal setting? Curious about the work of other GIS professionals in your area? Need some help with mapping or interested in seeing new approaches? Host or attend a "Mappy Hour"! These are informal get-togethers where all sorts of people, from GIS professionals and students to curious passers-by and hobbyists, meet up for a while to discuss, map, present, visit, and plan all things geospatial!

Mapathons

What is a mapathon? It's a coordinated event where participants focus their skills on mapping and editing data for a particular event, use case, or map source. Frequently used to assist with disaster response and humanitarian aid efforts, mapathons are not only a terrific way to crowdsource assistance, but also for participants to learn new tools and sharpen their geospatial skills. OpenStreetMap, a free and editable digital world map, provides a useful and common platform for mapathons to quickly organize work and streamline editing. To sign up for an OpenStreetMap account, click here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/new?cookie_test=trueThe Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) also provides a guide for new users: https://tasks.hotosm.org/learn/quickstart

See below for videos on how to sign up in the HOT tasking manager, how to select a task, and how to map buildings. For those who want to know more, here are twelve two-minute tutorial videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLb9506_-6FMHZ3nwn9heri3xjQKrSq1hN
