Please join this Thursday: The Data Studio Presents Navigating OpenStreetMap with Joe Larson on Jan. 31 at 11am-12pm, Library Data Studio Room 111C
Joe Larson is a GIS specialist with Cal Fire. He will explain how the agency uses OpenStreetMap (OSM), an open access geographic information system (GIS) resource, to create detailed maps of the local community that include various assets and structures. OSM also includes mobile applications that allow users to contribute data, and both have wide teaching applications. The Jan. 31 event will run 11 a.m. to noon in the Data Studio (Room 111C). Faculty, students and community members are welcome.
