Researchers from U-Spatial spoke at the recent 2018 Esri User Conference, an international meeting of experts in mapping and geographic information systems (GIS). The U-Spatial presentation, given on July 9, was called “Advancing Spatial Science and the Workforce of Tomorrow.” An article about this presentation can be found on the Office of the Vice President for Research Inquiry blog: U Experts Highlight Spatial Research at Industry Conference.
U-Spatial is led by Len Kne and is one of MSI’s partners in the OVPR’s Research Computing group. They serve and drive the need for expertise in GIS, remote sensing, and spatial community in the University’s research and scholarly community. They recently selected the winners for their annual Mapping Prize, which encourages students at the U to make provocative and innovative maps: Mapping Prize - 2018 Best Maps.
