GIS Day provides an international forum for users of geographic information systems (GIS) technology to demonstrate real-world applications that are making a difference in our society.
Join us for AU's celebration of GIS Day with a talk given by Holli Howard of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency. Howard will be discussing the role geospatial technology has played in her own work, education, and career path. This will be a great opportunity for students and faculty to learn more about how Geographic Information Systems (GIS) concepts and technology can be used to enhance and build careers (and accomplish important work!) in both the private sector and federal government.
Holli Howard is a Senior Geospatial Analyst on rotation to the USAID Global Development Lab from the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency whose work seeks to achieve better geospatial data collaboration between the two agencies. Howard previously worked as the Director of Geographic Resources at Casey Trees in DC and as Climate Adaptation Fellow at the Burlington's Sustainability Office.
This event is co-sponsored by the School of Communication, Environmental Studies, and Computer Science
Light refreshments will be served.
