The Centroid hosts a Geospatial Brown Bag Lunch series that welcomes presentations by professors, researchers, students, and industry professionals to share their work related to GIS and geospatial technologies. Subjects can range from learning how to make your first online map to Applications of ArcGIS in Global Health in Africa. 

As the name of the event suggests, bring your lunch over and come enjoy an hour of stimulating discussion!

The Spring 2017 schedule is still being planned, so check back for updates. Send us an email if you’d like to present, we still have slots available in April!
