Aurora, Colo., April 10, 2007 —The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) will present its 16 th Annual GIS for Oil & Gas Conference Sept. 24–26, 2007, at the Marriott Westchase Hotel in Houston, Texas. The original date and hotel for the conference (Sept. 17-19, 2007, at the JW Marriott Hotel) had to be changed because of construction taking place at the JW Marriott Hotel during that time.
