March Geo DC Meetup

Thanks to all of you who came out to our February Meetup on slum mapping. We had our biggest turnout ever-- headcounts were upwards of 100 geonerds! We've got even more great talks lined up for March, so make sure you mark your calendars for ­Wednesday, March 7th at 7pm at Stetsons.

So far we have two speakers lined up:

  • Jim Duncan from the World Bank will talk about his recent research into the geography of international river basins, including where there are gaps in treaty coverage and what it could mean in the context of climate change.
  • Tom MacWright will talk about the politics, implementation, and theory of map projections and give a demo of making a projection from scratch.

We're looking for 1-2 more presentations. If you'd like to give a 5 minute lightning talk on something related to mapping, geodata, cartography, and anything else geo-related, let us know!

If you want to keep up with the group in between meetups be sure to follow us on Twitter at @geo_dc­, like us on Facebook­, or join the Google Group.

Don't forget to RSVP­!

See you in March!
