A GISMO membership meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 14th from 11:30am to 2:00pm at the 6th floor offices of the Fund for the City of New York at 121 6th Avenue at Broome Street, just two blocks north of Canal Street. The location is easily reached via the Canal Street stops of the A, E, C, and #1 trains. A light lunch of sandwiches and soft drinks will be provided. If you wish to attend please RSVP to Amy Jeu (ajeu@hunter.cuny.edu) by COB Thursday, November 9th.

Two speakers are lined up:

  • Bert Spaan, who has been working with the New York Public Library on a project entitled NYC Space/Time Directory which is turning the Library’s digitized map collections into searchable datasets, making it easier to explore the history of New York.
  • Kenneth Wang, who works with Image Insight Inc. http://www.imageinsightinc.com, will be speaking about advances in miniature, mobile sensors that can be installed within smart phones. These devices can measure the presence of radiation, chemicals and biological hazards among other environmental conditions.

This membership meeting will also be used to discuss the recent GIS Jobs Fair, the NYS GIS Association’s GeoCon 2017 in Lake Placid, and upcoming GISMO elections. As usual we will start our meeting with introductions of new members.
