Welcome to the Nebraska GIS/LIS Blog!

We are going to use this space to try out a few ideas and as a place to further communicate with current and prospective members.

We are excited about our first blogging endeavor, the Member Spotlight, where we highlight a member (individual or organization) and really get to know them.

If you have anything that you may like to contribute to this space, please let us know.
