Today, GISTEC (Latitude business partners and Geocortex resellers) and I delivered the last of four seminars comprising the "Internet Mapping Roadshow". We visited Abu Dhabi and Dubai in UAE, Muscat in Oman, and Doha in Qatar. The roadshow was organized by GISTEC as a way to promote web GIS solutions to a large variety of organizations. With ~200 total attendees and a lot of positive feedback, the team at GISTEC and I will regard this as a huge success.

In addition to the roadshow, my trip has involved some onsite consultation with clients of GISTEC’s implementing Geocortex products in the middle-east. Adoption is gaining and so is the education. It seems our developer community is becoming more international; I’m looking forward to seeing the result of this at our user conference in April.
