Geothink at the AAG

Our Geothink grant held two sessions at the Annual meeting of the Association of American Geographers, April 8-12. in Tampa, Florida. They were on the wicked problem of public participation and whether the Geoweb could do anything to make participation less structural and more manageable. One nice aspect of our sessions was the inclusion of our partners, Neptis and USGS.
