Club Meetings and Activities

GIS Club at Geek Week

The GIS Club will be showing its members' work and talking about GIS at the American Geographic Society Library on the Fourth Floor of the Golda Meir Library on Wednesday, 2/25/15, from 1 to 2:30. If you'd like to share samples of your GIS work for exhibit, post on our Facebook page, GIS Club @ UWM.

Next Club Meeting-Urban Ecology Center Data Reduction

The club collected GPS data about the location of invasive species at the Urban Ecology Center on 10/30/14. Now we need to transform the data into a useful map. The officers are working on setting a date to create the map. See the meeting page for more details.

GIS Club Advisors

To keep us young turks on the straight and narrow, we look to our advisors, Donna Genzmer, GISP, (How could we go wrong when her Twitter handle is "@MapGoddess"?) and Professor William Huxhold, GISP.

Donna is the director of the Cartography and Geographic Information Science Center at UWM when she's not dealing with the club. Professor Huxhold is chair of the UWM Urban Planning Department. In 2011 he was inducted into the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association Hall of Fame.
