September 15, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Join us for a Thursday “P.O.S.T.”  – The Centroid’s new casual and collaborative learning event where we compare Proprietary and Open Source Techniques.


Thursday Sept. 8th  POSTponed this week due to Centroid staff health! New date Thursday Sept 15th, 3:30pm.

Our first POST session will feature a small cartography project, exploring Firefly symbology in both QGIS and ArcGIS Pro.

3:30 pm in the Geospatial Centroid lab, 211G Morgan Library

  • You will need some basic ArcGIS Pro and/or QGIS skills, and a desire to experiment, explore, and share. Bring a laptop if you have one, with ArcGIS Pro and QGIS installed.
  • We’ll provide some data to play with, computers if you can’t bring your own, and some snacks.
    • We’ll be using these Firefly resources to explore cartography and make a layout


Each session, we’ll work with a different theme or dataset, and explore how to work with it in two different GIS platforms.

ArcGIS?  QGIS?  R?  Python?  Google Earth Engine?

Project/Dataset topic will be announced the week before each event.
