Thanks again for joining MapStoryDC! We look forward to seeing you three weeks from today, February 27 at 7pm, Busboys and Poets, 14th and V location:)
If you're interested in getting more involved in the DC geography community, check out tonight's GeoDC meetup. Details at http://www.meetup.com/Geo-DC. It promises to be awesome!
We continue to line up MapStorytelling talks for Feb 27. Last week Hari Jones, curator of the African American Civil War Memorial in DC, confirmed that he'll share his in-progress MapStory on the spread of US Colored Troops Regiments (USCT) during the Civil War. Read more on Hari and the Memorial here: http://www.afroamcivilwar.org/news-a-events.html.
And, special guest Nitin Gadia will be on hand to share his fascinating effort to reconstruct the growth of his hometown, Ames, Iowa from 1862 to present...and to help us all think about how we can begin MapStorytelling change in our own communities.
If you have a story to share, be sure to let us know...or just come ready on the 27th to grab an open mic.
Oh, and there's still some room...so bring friends!
