Three events are planned for the semester. The first will be a general meet-up, for networking, chatting, and brainstorming, on September 14. The second event is a brown-bag lunchtime discussion, addressing the question "How is GIS helping me organize/display/analyze my data?" Come prepared to talk, to listen, or both on October 17. And lastly, Rebecca Dobbs will give a hands-on workshop on November 9. See the events page for details on all three events.

What the group ultimately becomes will depend on the interests and energies of the members, but the founders' vision includes
