The UO Libraries is hosting a keynote lecture for GIS Day on Wednesday, November 14, to showcase the uses and benefits of geographic information systems. The lecture will take place in the Knight Library Browsing Room from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The keynote speaker is Bernhard Jenny, an assistant professor of cartography and visualization at the Department of Geosciences at Oregon State University. His talk is entitled “Adding Natural Shape and Appearance to Web Maps: Adaptive Projections and Pseudorealistic Map Design."
Professor Jenny’s research combines cartography, computer graphics, geovisualization, and GIS. His lecture will be visually fascinating, and all UO students, staff, faculty, and community members are invited to attend. The event is free and open to the public.
