Spark your research creativity! GIS Day on Nov. 15thPublished by Mark Bodnar
One of the great benefits of working/studying in a large university like SFU is the increased potential for innovative ideas and approaches to spread between subjects. If you can take the time to step outside of your own department or faculty now and then — and out of the box of your discipline's usual perspective — you may learn something that allows you to see your own research area in a new way.
This in-person event will run from 9:15-3:00 on Nov. 15 in SFU's Bennett Library. You can register (free!) for the morning (presentations & lightning talks), the afternoon (career panel), or both. See our GIS page for details.
Let me know if you have any questions at all!
P.S.: I know a number of BUS/ECON researchers have been looking into the pilot availability of BC Assessment data. One of the sessions at GIS Day includes a talk by a REM grad student about research he's completed using that dataset: "Mapping the Variable Impacts of Zoning Restrictions on Housing Costs."
