Information Systems (GIS) Maps have revolutionized how we view data...and our
universe—allowing us to see trends that were previously invisible. But what
exactly is GIS? As part of our Trending Now series, Felipe Avila, GIS
Coordinator for the Wisconsin Historical Society, explains this exciting
technology and takes us on a journey through its amazing diversity of uses.
Learn how GIS is used in archeology, crime prediction & analysis, geography,
extreme weather events, climate tracking & change, urban planning, and more! History
buffs, environmentalists, political thinkers, civic leaders... there is
something for everyone here! Discussion & Q&A will follow the presentation. Refreshments provided by Monona Starbucks.
