Topic: Virtual Student Poster Session

Meeting Link: 

We are closing off this virtual season with a virtual student poster presentation session. Many years ago, our annual Poster Presentations were one of our most popular annual meetings. We resurrect this in virtual form this year, and invite you to come meet the brave students who have volunteered to show us the GIS work they have been doing during this pandemic year.

This will be a virtual Zoom meeting. The format will be casual with each student having 5 mins for presentation of their poster and up to 5 mins for questions/discussion. Student poster presenters this year are:

Jordon Foy, Enterprise Geospatial Server Project
Jesse Bennet, Geospatial Server
Kelsey Wong, Minerva Intelligence
Rachel Chen, Visualizing Temperature Records in Canada on Climate Dashboard
Toney Khuon, Real-time Mapping and Visualization of Climate Statistics
Isaac Cave, Remote Sensing Classification of Crops in Delta

Following the Poster Presentations, you are invited to hang around and catch-up with each other. Looking forward to virtually seeing you there.
