Description

Our Fall Science Symposium speaker is Francis Harvey from the University of Minnesota. His talk, titled:

WASN'T GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION ALWAYS BIG?

will be about whether the current rage for big data really brings us anything new, given the long history of cartographers and geographers dealing with massive amounts of data and large differences of scale.

Francis is a geographer who has written extensively on both the technical intricacies of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the ways they affect everyday political, economic and personal life. He is expert in the design, implementation, and ethical issues of GIS, and there will be several opportunities for those interested to consult with him during his visit.
