NEURISA's international parent organization, the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA), is a non-profit professional and educational association that promotes the effective and ethical use of spatial information and information technologies for the understanding and management of urban and regional systems. It is a multidisciplinary association where professionals from all parts of the spatial data community can come together and share concerns and ideas.
URISA has taken a historic step forward in adopting the blueprint for the OneURISA Model. The blueprint is the result of several years of hard work by the URISA Chapter Advisory Board and their OneURISA Committee.
What is OneURISA? First and foremost, OneURISA provides many benefits to indivual members, chapters and URISA International. A key feature of OneURISA is that it provides the structure that empowers all our members, chapter members and international members alike, by making them part of the same organization.
