Blue Marble User Conference

Coming Soon: Details about the March 21, 2019 Virtual Conference

The Blue Marble User Conference is evolving in 2019, with a new online format, new ideas, and new presentations.

In the past, Blue Marble User Conferences were held in a variety of locations throughout the year, where a limited amount of geospatial professionals could attend. This coming year, Blue Marble is expanding the accessibility of the knowledge-rich experience to a global audience by transforming the event into a webinar conference.

Blue Marble will be updating this page with more details about the conference that will be broadcasted live on March 21, 2019.

What is a Blue Marble User Conference?

The Blue Marble User Conference is a gathering of geospatial professionals representing a wide variety of industry sectors, government departments, and academic institutions who share a common interest in Blue Marble's GIS and geodetic technology. BMUC offers attendees an opportunity to gain insight into current and future product plans; to hear from interesting and innovative users of Blue Marble's geospatial tools; to pick up useful tips and tricks for optimizing the application of both Global Mapper and Geographic Calculator; and to participate in the on-going collaborative development process by providing feedback and requests to the Blue Marble team.

After a successful run in 2016 and 2017, the Blue Marble User Conference continued in 2018, finally wrapping up the year in Portland, ME on September 21st.
