History of GITA
In 1982, a formal not-for-profit organization was chartered to serve the growing industry with an educational forum to exchange ideas and keep up with changing technologies. The association was named AM/FM International, reflecting a revolutionary new technology that was sweeping the utility industry.
AM/FM International provided vision and leadership in educating individuals interested in implementing AM/FM/GIS technology. In 1998, AM/FM International changed its name to the Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA), in order to better reflect the association’s new focus. GITA’s mission is to provide geospatial solutions in education, information exchange, and applied research on the use and benefits of geospatial information and technology for worldwide infrastructure.
The industries that GITA serves are defined as infrastructure-based organizations that can benefit from the application of geospatial information technologies. GITA defines infrastructure as all fundamental services, activities, and operations that sustain our communities and way of life.
