Registration open for UW-Milwaukee GIS Day

There is no GIS Day event planned for this fall at UW-Madison, so consider making the trip east to check out UW-Milwaukee’s GIS Day on Wednesday November 18th.

Planned activities for the day include workshops, a student GIS project competition, map gallery, a tour of the American Geographical Society Library tour, and a variety of speakers. The featured luncheon speaker is Melanie McCalmont who will discuss “The Top 5 Questions: GIS in College and Career Readiness.”  A complimentary pizza lunch is included.

The event is free, but attendees are asked to pre-register.  For more information contact at (414) 29-4865.

All-new campus geospatial directory now available

IMG 0326aAs part of a recent Geospatial Alliance website overhaul, we made considerable improvements to the online UW-Madison geospatial directory.  The directory contains a comprehensive listing of UW-Madison faculty, staff, and students who are engaged in the application and development of geospatial technologies. The directory was developed several years ago in response to the fundamental challenge of knowing “who’s who” on a large campus like UW-Madison.

The biggest improvement includes the ability to search for faculty, staff, and students based on info contained in their profile.  This was not an option with the old directory. We also added a feature to filter the directory listings by faculty, staff, or student status.

If you are not currently in the directory, simply fill out the registration form.

If your existing entry in the directory is outdated, with the updated details.
