The ASPRS 2005 Annual Conference was held on March 7-11, 2005 at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland, with over 1500 attendees. The conference, “Geospatial Goes Global: From Your Neighborhood to the Whole Planet,” was opened with a keynote address from Dr. Chip Groat, director, U.S. Geological Survey.
Fourteen workshops were offered on the two days preceding the conference. Also an exhibit hall of more than 80 booths showcased the latest in products and services of suppliers worldwide.
A Classified Session consistent with the overall conference theme took place, which dealt with an innovative perspective on integration and analysis of satellite imagery and geospatial data.
Numerous awards were made throughout the conference to many deserving recipients including an ASPRS Fellow, student scholarships, and ASPRS Region awards. Among these were the newly established BAE Systems Award and the Kenneth J. Osborn Memorial Scholarship.
