Applications of Geographic Information Systems in a Research Environment

Join Drexel's Student Chapter of the American Library Association 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 Computation 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’ W. W. Hagerty Library in
room (L13-C). Refreshments will be served beforehand in room (L33) starting
