"Don't be left in the dark!"

The Far North GIS Users Group (FunGIS) aims to unite the far northern spatial community through events and workshops, the sharing of resources and the distribution of news of local geospatial initiatives.

FunGIS has been operating for almost 30 years and continues to serve its members through its activities.

FunGIS hosts an annual conference every May on an exciting new theme. The 2019 conference theme was "Dealing with Data".  Presentations and workshop content are freely available here

In addition, FunGIS runs monthly "MapChats" to learn about GIS use case in the Far North. 

Bonus collaborative events also pop up throughout the year. Check out our Events page for more information!
