UMN GIS Day 2009

Hi all,

It is almost GIS Day! This year, the University of Minnesota is celebrating GIS Day on Friday, November 20 to complement the 3rd Annual Borchert Lecture, given this year by Mark Monmonier. Mark Monmonier is a distinguished researcher and author known for his fascinating books on cartography and geography, including "How to Lie with Maps". For more information on Monmonier and the lecture, see the following link:

A poster session held in conjunction with the lecture, taking place at 12 noon outside the Cowles Auditorium in the HHH lobby. We encourage anyone using GIS in their research to participate and submit a poster. The poster session is open to all and aims to display some of the work going on at the U within GIS and using GIS. There are groups coming in from around the state to see the lecture and poster session, making this a great opportunity to showcase your work and get your name out there a bit.

If interested in sharing a poster, please reply, and please forward this on to whomever else you think would be interested. It should be a great event!

Best,
Mike
