University of Kentucky GIS Day Talk

I had the pleasure of keynoting my PhD-granting department’s GIS day events, which capped their Geography Awareness Month festivities. I presented a pair of recent projects—the Tenant Power application, and the Mapping the Investors Exchange work—read through a model of practice that I call ‘mapping up’, following Laura Nader’s work (as well as the work of, for example, my fellow MIT-er Chelsea Barabas and colleagues).

It was an honor to be included on such a great list of folks—the Leventhal Center’s Garrett Dash Nelson, the University of Wisconsin’s Meghan Kelly (soon to join Dartmouth), and Ryan Cooper, who’s a pal from my time in Lexington. Thanks to Rich Donohue for the very kind invite!
