On Thursday, November 19th at 5:00 pm, the University of Winnipeg’s Geography & Environmental Students Association (GESA) and the Manitoba GIS User Group (MGUG) will be holding their first ever PechaKucha Night (PKN). Find them in Room 1W06 at the University of Winnipeg. Presentations will observe a 20 slides X 20 seconds format, followed by a short 5 minutes Q&A.
Five informative industry speakers have been confirmed.
- Adrian Werner: Working title “The Race and Nation State in High Fantasy: A cartographic perspective”
- Keith Hartley: “A lightning talk on Lightning”
- Holly Ervick-Knote – Planner – Municipal Government: “GIS and Zoning”
- Allyson Demski – Geospatial Technologist – Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation
- Cassandra Clouston – GIS Specialist – AECOM – “Assiniboine River Dike Inspection” An MIT project
Students will learn about how GIS is integrated into a wide range of workplaces and an array of interesting uses for GIS that they may not have been exposed to in the University setting. It will also be an opportunity for students to network with future employers and gain a sense of where they may want to take their education after graduation.
