Notices and Events

Planning is underway for the 2014 GIS Day at UWM on Wednesday, 9/19. The web site will soon be open to register for hands-on workshops and for the famous pizze lunch. There's no cost. Until then, see details about the 2013 UWM GIS Day.

Need GIS?

Occasionally, we decide that it's time to make the world a better place through GIS. For example, we recently helped the Food and Garden Club at UWM find locations on campus with good sunlight for vegetable gardens. Or can help your non-profit build a map of where your donors live or where your clients shop. Or we can help you understand the spatial environment in your service area with insights like the number of households below the poverty line.

Take a look at our past project portfolio.

Got a need? We may be able to help. Send us an e-mail with your details.

Just a couple of restrictions...

We do work only for community and non-profit organizations (the rest of you guys can hire hire us after we graduate).

We can't do all the projects that people ask us to do. We'll typically pick projects that make the best uses of GIS or are the most innovative.
