Coffee Hour

UD GIS Coffee Hour meetings are organized to bring GIS community members together. This is an outlet to collaborate with others that use GIS software in research or live applications, demonstrate a variety of GIS implementations, ask for advice and draw ideas. These meetings are informal and open to all. All meetings are offered over video conferencing, and are recorded and available from this website.

Organized by IT Client Support & Services and UD Library.
