Latest News: New SCGIS Website Coming Soon

We are excited to announce that our new website will be launching soon! This is the result of almost two years of hard work by the SCGIS Website committee, our contractor (One Big Robot), and others. The new website will include a clean, modern, mobile-friendly design, and will offer many improvements over the old site. We hope you will all find the new site useful and enjoyable to navigate, and we’re looking forward to showing it off soon!
