Open House showcasing mapping resources

On Wednesday, September 1 from Noon to 4:00pm, an Open House will be in full swing focusing on the mapping resources in Science Hall on the UW-Madison campus. The open house will give students and the public an opportunity to learn about the wealth of resources and talent that make UW-Madison one of the nation’s leading centers of geography, cartography and related disciplines.

The open house, which is free and open to all, will showcase the resources of the UW-Madison department of geography, including: the State Cartographer’s Office, the Robinson Map Library, The Geography Library and the Cartographic Laboratory, the History of Cartography Project, the GIS Certificate Program, and the SoLIM Project, a new technology for soil mapping.

The open house is being held in recognition of the 30th anniversary of our office, and to showcase the geography department’s new reorganization, and the Robinson Map Library’s new look and expanded menu of services. Students, staff and faculty as well as area professionals engaged in the mapping sciences are encouraged to attend.
