Winter Lyceum (6 of 7): Dr. Nancy Von Meyer Presents “GIS in the Mining District”

March 27, 2022 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm

Dr. Nancy Von Meyer, who began her career in Platteville as a mining engineer and went on to become a pioneer in the field of digital mapping, presents her insights into the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the Tri-state area’s Upper Mississippi Valley Mining District. She will also explore public mapping, and will help identify GIS data and maps that would be useful for museum enthusiasts. Dr. Nancy Von Meyer is an expert in GIS and land records and is the president of Fairview Industries, where she has solved many problems related to land records.

Each year, the museum invites a series of speakers to share their unique stories, histories, and insights.
