ASU GIS Day 2016

The new unit I’m leading at Arizona State University, the ASU Library-based Map and Geospatial Hub, is hosting its first ever outreach event: ASU GIS Day 2016.

It’s sort of an unofficial debut event for the previously non-existent Map and Geospatial Hub.

If you’re by chance in the greater Phoenix area on Friday, November 18, please join us!

Full program details are available through the following two venues (and copied below):
