Lisa Enns will present on using R for census data pulls. We’ll start with a brief overview of the different types of census surveys and geography types so you have a better idea of what survey to use for different analyses. We’ll then explore some basic R code and a few additional resources to use when looking into census data.

Christy Heaton will talk about mapping the April 8 total solar eclipse.

Matt Stevenson will discuss (and attempt to explain) a peculiar addressing scheme he encountered in the medieval German town of Durlach.

Anyone is invited to share (their own or news about any interesting) small or large geospatial projects. As always any geo-questions are encouraged and will gladly be discussed within the group.
