Mistakes I've Made: Getting it right when it went wrong

No job or project, especially in GIS and cartography, is without its pitfalls and pratfalls. Elaine Guidero has encountered her fair share of them throughout her career so far. From GIS fails to things that she could have done better, Guidero will share not just the finished products, but the missteps along the way.

Elaine Guidero is a geographer at the U.S. Geological Survey, doing cartographic design and research for The National Map and other projects. She earned her doctorate in 2016 from Penn State, with a dissertation about the intersection between cartography and typography, and how different fonts bring their own personalities to maps.

This event is free, but registration is required and is limited to 20 attendees. The talk will be streamed live via Zoom for those unable to attend in person. [About Zoom at IU]
