Does anyone know exactly where NACIS is going to be in the St. Louis area next year? St. Louis is my home turf!

This year was my first at NACIS. It was nice to put a face to a lot of the names here on CartoTalk.

Check the NACIS homepage for the most up-to-date details, but St. Louis definately means the city itself, and probabely somewhere downtown. Lou mentioned "6 miles from the airport", or something to that effect.

There were some brochures sitting on the registration table from the Hilton Frontenac. I grabbed one but it's at home not with me now. The dates given were October 11 & 12, 2007.

Here's the Location from Hilton

The couple folks I asked in Madison about that told me that the conference was going to be in Frontenac (St. Louis area), not St. Louis "proper". However, I don't know for sure where any of that is....since I've only spent 2-3 brief trips around St. Louis over the past 15-20 years. According to Google Maps though, we're probably somewhere near the intersection of interstates 270 and 64.

The municipality of St Louis is fairly small, even by US standards. The great majority of St Louis population and development is in the suburbs.

Here's the actual location, which is technically in the town of Frontenac, Missouri:

I thought that the conference moving one week earlier next year might affect my calendar in a negative way, but it looks as though the dates for Frontenac should work on my calendar. I would LOVE to see all of you at the 2007 event! That, and maybe I can bring a few of our other designers with me in 2007.....as I would love for them to be able to share in meeting with many of you as well.

I found a nice map of St. Louis. It is from a cartographer (Bill Tipton) who does very interesting work that adds a refreshing taste to the art in cARTography.

Up to NACIS 2007, why don't we scour and find interesting maps of the conference location?

Wow, looking at that map is the first time I have really gotten a sense of the flood plains around those rivers. It is very clearly seen as wide ribbons of flat areas flanking the rivers.
