Putting GIS to Work within the Scientific Method

  • Training Date:
  • Training Time:

Meet up with science practitioners and GIS professionals to learn how to expand your domain expertise into the world of scientific data management, modeling and analysis.

Geography, the science of our world, coupled with geographic information systems (GIS) is helping us understand the Earth and apply geographic knowledge to a host of human activities.

At this free in-person meetup, you will hear from government experts who are:

– Leveraging GIS for developing scientific models.
– Analyzing and visualizing scientific data.
– Communicating outcomes easily and effectively.

See how GIS helps scientists refocus their efforts to spend more time performing scientific work – developing models, making predictions, and driving break-through discoveries – rather than processing data.
