Veregin named State Cartographer

Robert Kaiser, Chair of the UW-Madison Geography Department, made the following announcement on August 25th:

“Please join me in welcoming Howard Veregin to Science Hall as the new State Cartographer! Just before I left town, Howard accepted our offer, and will be joining us as of September 1. He received his PhD from UC – Santa Barbara, and held a faculty position in cartography at the University of Minnesota before joining Rand McNally in 2000, where he was director of their GIS division. He is excited to be back in an academic setting, and the State Cartographer’s Office will benefit greatly from his years and diversity of experience.”
