Final Poster Fair - Intro to GIS (UP 506) 

The final projects for students enrolled in UP 506, Introduction to GIS, will be presented at a public poster fair from 1:30 - 3:30pm. The event will follow the format of a poster fair at a professional conference. There will be no program, and attendees will be able to review the posters at their leisure. Students will be available to answer questions about their projects. A list of final project titles will be circulated in early April and updated to this event posting. We hope to see some of you at the event.
