Congrats, Dr. Wangui!

Have you heard? In recognition of her outstanding teaching, Geography's Dr. Edna Wangui has been selected for the University Professor Award! Congrats Edna! Very well deserved.

As part of the award, she gets to teach a course of her choosing next Spring. Keep an eye out for it!

If the Moon Were Only 1 Pixel - A tediously accurate map of the solar system

A great example of how maps can be used for more than just finding a location on the Earth's surface. They can be illustrative, metaphoric, and tell us stories. Also, this is one of the best examples of the scale of the solar system (and the universe by extension) that I've come across.

StumbleUpon is the easiest way to discover new and interesting web pages, photos and videos across the Web.

Hey everyone, you may have gotten the email from Dr. Buckley about tonight's meeting but here's another reminder anyway. Robert Delach from the Voinovich School will be giving a talk about the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap. He is the Senior Geospatial Manager there, and is pretty new to campus so he may be a good resource for anyone interested in related fields. Also we will go over a few other things club related. Hope to see you all at 6!

Hey everyone,

Hi everyone,

Here is the link to the registration page for the Race for the Cure this weekend. The race/walk is on Sunday starting at 10 am. You can register online or in person on Sunday. I encourage you to register, it even has an option to sleep in for the cure and you would still get a t-shirt. Student registration is $15 or you can donate as well. Every little bit helps! Hope to see you Sunday.

Hey everyone, Dr. Dyer has asked if we can sell club shirts at the homecoming Geography department social tomorrow. I know it's last minute but if anyone is already going and would like to help sell some shirts, or if you'd be willing to go just to sell shirts, it'd be really awesome. The social is from 11am to 1pm. Starts right after the parade and right before the game.

Tonight's guest speaker is Geography grad student Steven Richardson. He will be sharing with us the GIS research he did last summer, studying native prairie grasses in South Dakota.

Also, as this is the last meeting of the month an activity planning committee meeting will be held immediately after the regular club meeting. All are welcome and encouraged to join and help plan club activities for the month of October.

Geography Club T Shirt Sale - Doodle: easy scheduling

Hey everyone! I created a Doodle poll for selling shirts. Please select a time that you are available to work the table. You can have two people per shift, but keep in mind it's better to have more time slots covered with one person than only a few with multiple people working. Thanks!

Please pick a one hour shift to work the table and sell geography shirts for $15
