It doesn't feel like Spring right now with the pretty snow on the ground, but Spring semester is beginning and with it there will be a few GIS workshops. In Spring Semester 2021 all of our workshops will be held online. As usual, they are free and open to anyone who wants to attend. No experience with GIS is necessary. If you have any questions please contact Amanda Tickner via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
