Rochester is proud to host the World Canal Conference for the second time.

The Erie Canal was a major catalyst for Rochester's early growth after the Revolutionary War, helping it become America's first "boom town." Today, City leaders are once again turning to its waterways, including the canal system, to spur economic vitality. Recent and ongoing projects along canal system - which includes a stretch of the Genesee River -- include Erie Harbor, Corn Hill Landing and Brooks Landing.

Clearly, the Erie Canal played a vital role in Rochester's history and will continue to do so in its future. It is an ideal venue for the 23rd-annual World Canal Conference from Sept. 19 to 24.

The Conference is a gathering of canal enthusiasts, professionals and scholars to discuss the many opportunites that canal systems provide their host communities. Delegates to the Conference represent more than 17 nations. Rochester was a World Canal Conference venue in 2000 and is now the first communty to host the event twice.

In honor or this year's World Canal Conference, Mayor Robert J. Duffy and the Rochester City Council have agreed to help sponsor the family-themed activities that will mark the Opening Day of the Conference on Sunday, Sept. 19.

Photographers Note - This picture needed to be taken during the International Canal Conference and of course the weather for the week was not cooperating, however we ended up with one nice day that allowed me to get this shot in. This was taken on top of a 13 story apartment building where I had to beg my way for access to the roof!, and was my first shot for the day. This GigaPan consists of 125 individual pictures stiched together, creating a 232 megapixel panogramic, with each picture taken at a focal length of 200mm.
