A Journey through Space and Time: GIS in Practice and Academics – Kevin Kane
A geographic information system (GIS) is a framework for gathering, managing and analyzing data for more informed decision-making. Rooted in the science of geography and the art of cartography, GIS integrates many types of information. It analyzes spatial location and organizes layers of information into visualizations using maps and 3D scenes. With this unique capability, GIS reveals deeper insights into data, such as patterns, relationships and situations (Esri, 2020). Kevin Kane, associate dean for research and outreach in the College of Design, will present a career arc in the field of GIS that has taken him from a student, to practice in a state agency, to research and outreach in the academy.
Kane’s presentation is part of the Friday Research Seminar Series sponsored by the Institute for Design Research and Outreach. This semester, the series emphasizes the creative scholarship and academic backgrounds of upper administration in the College of Design. All are welcome to attend this brown-bag session.
