GIS EVENT: Applications of Geographic Information Systems in a Research Environment

Join SCALA on Friday, December 6th, at 6 PM, for the first in a series of GIS talks and workshops hosted by Scott Haag.

Scott Haag is a PhD Student at the College of Computing and Informatics and the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Database Administrator at The Reinvestment Fund (TRF) a non-profit focused on lending to disadvantaged communities.  Scott has used GIS and Remote Sensing (RS) technologies for the past 14 years to study a variety of research questions, from the location of prime fish habitat in the Hudson Canyon to the identifying areas with inadequate access to supermarkets. In the past Scott has held research positions at the Center for Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis and the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences both within Rutgers University.  Scott has a master of Sciences in Ecology and Evolution and Certificate in Engineering Geophysics.

The session will cover the history of GIS, what's happening in the field, and the practical application of GIS skills as illustrated by Haag's work. At the end of this session, participants will be able to ask questions, propose topics for future workshops, and express community needs related to GIS skills.

This event will be held at Drexel University Libraries’ Hagerty Library in room (L13-C). Refreshments will be served beforehand in room (L33) starting at 5:30 PM.

Please RSVP to Drexel SCALA (drexelscala@gmail.com).
