WWC GIS Day 2008

That's right, it's GIS Day again -- here's our slate of events for Wednesday, November 19th:

11:00-12:30 Open House
Coffee! Cookies! Cool maps!
Join us in the GIS lab to look at a gallery of our maps and projects, learn to use a GPS unit, or chat about the crew.

1:00-1:30 Alex Haynes
Spatially interpolating sensor data using Java, Ruby on Rails and Google Earth
Alex Haynes will cover what the title says, except that it will be more interesting. Also, we can see Russia from our lab.

2:30-3:00 Nora Purcell
Sickness in Space: GIS and Disease Patterns
Inoculate yourself against ignorance. Warning: Early ignorance season predicted this year. Ignorance may cause astronauts to become ill.

3:00-3:30 Corey White
Predicting water main breaks in the San Antonio water system
Come learn about predictive modeling applied to water main breaks in San Antonio. There will be free hats.

3:30-4:00 Chris Fusting
Open Source GIS
Do you like free things such as hats? Then you will really, really like open source GIS. Open source is like a long walk on the beach at dusk with a special friend.

4:00-4:30 Geocaching!
Okay…we were making up the other free stuff. We’re sorry. But if you come to geocaching you can compete to find hidden treasure!! It will not be lame hidden treasure like in that hippie song “One Tin Soldier.” It’ll be good, like what pirates find.
