Yesterday, March 21st, GEOTEC received Prof. Joseph Kerski from the University of Denver and ESRI Education manager.
Kerski, renowned for his passion for GIS and Geography, gave a talk titled The world in your hands: the influence of maps in the information age . Joseph presented an easygoing talk addressed to all kind of audiences, centered in the main idea about the importance of “place” and “space” in the current society.
