This November 18, at 1:00 pm eastern, Keith VanGraafeiland and I will be conversing with six mega-interesting map friends. You can sign up here to join us. I mean, why not?
GIS Day (stands for Geographic-information-systems Is Spectacular…Day) is a day to celebrate the wonder and knowable mystery of spatial thinking and geographic action. Keith VanGraafeiland (Keith is an oceanographer, and his surname is Dutch for “of the grave island.” Wow, do not mess with that guy) and I will be chatting with some intensely interesting geo-folks about the ways that they map the world, why they do it, and how you can too. Because we think it will be fun!
In this informal conversation series with our six map-wielding friends, we’ll learn in what ways mapping is a part of their work and how they blend their ideas and passion into it. Each guest will describe a bit of their work for around ten minutes or so, then chat with Keith and I for a few more minutes, seeded with the questions that you ask. Interesting examples? Loads. Big map energy? Come onnnnn.
P.S. Fun fact, this poster was designed by my son, Bear.
