The Geography Department at UW-Madison is hosting a day-long event in Science Hall on Friday, November 11, 2016, from 9 am to 8 pm. The theme of the event is the Department’s 70+ year tradition in the mapping sciences. This year is the 101st anniversary of the birth of Arthur H. Robinson, the renowned cartographer who taught at UW-Madison for many decades and helped create the Map Library, the Cartography Lab, and the State Cartographer’s Office.
Events on November 11th include a mapathon, career panel, two inspiring map-related presentations, and a “Science Hall After Dark” event from 6-8 pm. All events are free except the After Dark event, which costs $30 and will offer food and beverages. All proceeds will benefit Geography students.
Don’t miss this opportunity to find out what the Geography Department has to offer your business or organization, including skills and expertise in GIS and mapping, training and educational programs, and potential student internship opportunities.
All are welcome. We hope to see you there!
