EEO-AGI(S): GeoSciences Professional Seminar Series 2019-20
This week's EEO seminar, hosted jointly with the Hutton Club, is given by Dr. Nick McWilliam of MapAction.
Started in 2002, the NGO MapAction has worked in over 100 emergency responses. The talk will outline not only how its use of GI technologies has developed, but how the humanitarian context and its 'information landscape' have changed over this time. It will also look at MapAction's increasing focus on training, capacity building, and preparedness, including a joint project with the School of GeoSciences, using 3D web mapping to help make volcanic risk mapping more accessible to communities and agencies in hazard-prone areas.
All are welcome - refreshments are provided.
