EPan_LogoThe Eastern Panhandle GIS Users Group Meeting is an annual one-day conference designed to highlight local and regional GIS endeavors. The first meeting took place in 2006 with just a handful of GISers and has grown to host about 50-60 attendees every year.

The EPan is located in different county in the West Virginia Eastern Panhandle every year, in an effort to make the conference available to all GIS Users in the area. Over the years it has taken place in several towns, including Charles Town, Shepherdstown, Martinsburg, Berkeley Springs, and Romney.

If you would like to learn more about the Eastern Panhandle GIS Users Group Meeting or would like to volunteer to help with planning a future event, please contact Jessica Gormont (jgormont@jeffersonountywv.org).
