The Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC) are pleased to host the annual Roger Tomlinson Prize lecture.
This year's lecture will be given by Michael Gould, Esri's Global Education Manager, and is entitled 'Data, Software, and Services: Views from Industry and Academia'. The event is supported by the Association for Geographic Information (AGI).
The event will take place on Thursday 22nd March (17:00 - 20:00) at the Senate House (Court and Jessel Rooms), London, WC1E.
The annual Roger Tomlinson Prize will also be presented at this event. The Prize was established at University College London (UCL) by Jack Dangermond, founder of Esri, and is in honour of Roger Tomlinson. Dr Tomlinson is widely credited with being the ‘Father of GIS’, and obtained his PhD in Geography at UCL in the early 1970s. The annual Prize is awarded for the best PhD thesis submitted to UCL which relates to the development or application of GIS. The Prize is intended to support new PhD scholars in sharing their ideas around the world and in developing their careers.
