At tomorrow’s Geo DC meetup, three federal geographical information officers will discuss how their agencies use maps and geodata in their work. Jerry Johnston from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Tony LaVoi from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and Mike Byrne from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will all share the unique geospatial opportunities at their agencies, what they’re doing, and what challenges they face in better visualizing data and utilizing maps. They’ll also demo some of their latest geo-related projects.
The meetup, held at Stetson’s at 16th and U streets NW, will get started at 7:00 pm, with presentations starting at 7:30 pm. There will be plenty of time to ask questions after, and to talk with the speakers and everyone else who attends. For more information and to sign up for updates, check out the group’s meetup group or follow it on Twitter at @geonerdsdc.
The Geo DC meetup is held on the first Wednesday of every month and next month will feature a Nonprofit Mapping Showcase. If you’d like to volunteer to show off your work, send a message to @geonerdsdc or talk to an organizer tomorrow.
