GIS Day Presentation

About KU GIS Day:

The video below is of my presentation at the University of Kansas’ 2007 GIS Day Student Competition. I was one of 10 presenters (and one of three undergrads presenting). Students from the represented KU, Haskell Indian Nations University, and Baker University. Here is how KU explained the 2007 event on their website:

GIS Day @ KU is part of a nationwide event to promote awareness of geographic information systems (GIS), and how we use this evolving tool to analyze our world. We continue our tradition of bringing together a community of GIS users from academia, business and government. This year’s focus is on the range of available software solutions (both proprietary and open-source), and how GIS and the web are combining to create new and exciting capabilities. The 2007 symposium also includes a new event, an information fair with vendors from academia and local business that will run throughout the day. As always, GIS Day @ KU is FREE and open to the public.

As a presenter and participant, it was a fantastic event. I learned a lot form the other presentations, including the fact that my methods were about 3-5 years behind the latest technology at the time of my presentation. It was definitely a worth while and welcoming interdisciplinary experience.
