An excerpt from this year's program:

University of Minnesota: U-Spatial–Advancing Spatial Science and the Workforce of Tomorrow

Within the halls of the University of Minnesota, thousands of researchers and students have joined U‑Spatial, a nationally recognized program that serves and drives a fast-growing need for expertise in GIS, remote sensing, and spatial computing. Learn about its innovative approaches to education, research, and community outreach that are creating a spatially aware and connected future workforce. Explore its research—from the creation of a digital elevation model for the Antarctic to mapping prejudice to what's next in visualizing maps in motion—and the development of lifelong skills at the university.

Presenters: Len Kne, Kevin Ehrman-Solberg, Coleman Shepard, Somayeh Dodge, and Tom Fisher

Congratulations to all involved!
