GIS Day @ McGill


Come hear the talks and do the geocaching at GIS Day at McGill, November 18, 2009.

10:30-11:30: Talks on how we use GIS

1:30 onward: Geo-caching - around the city and campus! Students will be able to participate in a geo-caching race with GPS units, the winning team will be granted a cash prize (in addition to team fund raising efforts) to be donated to charity. This event will be followed up with refreshments and discussion.



Sieber gave a presentation, Subverting the Mapping Machine, at TEDx, Nov. 5.

Despite their computer freezing in the middle of the presentation, the audience enjoyed the talk.
