The keynote speaker is Anthony Vodacek, Associate Professor, Center for Imaging Science, Rochester Institute of Technology.  We would like to encourage faculty and students to present posters during our poster session and lunch reception (11:30am-1pm).  To register, go to:     

If you are unable to attend this event at Notre Dame, but know of colleagues who may be interested, please forward this announcement to them. Contact information is included at the above referenced link in case you have any questions. 

"GIS" stands for Geographic Information System. GIS software represents features on the earth as digital, spatial data. GIS is used to visualize, question, analyze and understand digital geospatial data. Spatial analysis of GIS data can reveal patterns and highlight spatial connections and correlations not readily apparent. As the web page states, our goal is to build a community of interest around an already active group of researchers working with geospatial information.

If you are interested in getting announcements about geospatial workshops, training sessions, seminars and monthly user meetings please subscribe to the GIS list serve.
