Abstract : United States Army Toxic and Hazardous Materials Agency (USATHAMA), United States Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (USACERL), and United States Army Waterways Experiment Station (USAWES) sponsored a symposium entitled 'Managing Hazardous and Toxic Waste Information: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Applications' on August 9, 10, and 11 in Denver, Colorado. The purpose of that meeting was for sharing ideas, systems and process on the various GIS programs within the Corps of Engineers and the Army, with applications to the study and management of hazardous and toxic waste issues. The symposium provided a unique opportunity to develop synergy between the Corps of Engineers Laboratories, specifically in the area of GIS Research and Development and GIS implementation efforts.
