The Pacific GIS/RS Conference takes place annually and brings together the GIS/RS specialists to present new developments in the GIS/RS sector to the Pacific Region. This Conference brings together regional as well as international participants.

The Pacific GIS/RS Conference first took place in 1998 as the Fiji Annual GIS & RS User Conference. After being funded by the EU for a project with SOPAC to assist GIS/RS application in the Pacific Region, the Conference was established as the Pacific Islands GIS/RS User Conference from 2004.
