This month, the UBC Library will begin hosting meetings of the newly-rekindled UBC GIS Users Group. This group will be a gathering of students, researchers, faculty and staff on campus who work in some way with, or are interested in, geographical information systems (or science) (GIS). The meetings will be held monthly on the last Wednesday of the month in Koerner Library Room 216 at 4:00pm. There will be a speaker, followed by a trip to Koerner’s Pub for refreshments.
Wednesday, October 27, 4:00pm
Presentation: overview of GIS services and facilities provided by UBC Library (including the new GIS/Research Data Lab), followed by tours of the lab
At future meetings we are hoping to have students, researchers, faculty and staff from around campus talk about how they are using GIS in their work. There are a lot of exciting, state-of-the-art projects happening around campus, and this will be a great way for people to share their work and network with other GIS users.
