Tufts Projects Earn Accolades At ESRI GIS Conference

If you’re a UEP student, you’ve probably spent many a long afternoon with Carolyn Talmadge in the Tisch Library Data Lab. As a 2014 Tufts graduate with an M.S in Environmental Health, Carolyn now works full time as the University’s Senior Geographic Information System (GIS) Specialist. Part of her role is to promote the hard work of Tufts GIS students, which she did recently at the preeminent mapping software company ESRI’s annual conference in San Diego. Read her rundown of highlights and awards below!

I’m back from the ESRI GIS Conference in San Diego where 18,000 people from all industries across the globe gathered to talk GIS for 8 days and I have some really wonderful highlights to share. The whole week was excellent exposure for Tufts and our new GIS Certificate Program and I thought you all would like to hear about it!

Major Highlights:

Overall it was an excellent conference with really fantastic exposure for Tufts University and the Data Lab. Lots more exciting news during the 10 days, but these are the highpoints. Definitely worth the trip!
