October 20, 2015 - Joseph Kerski -
"Examining 100 Years of USGS Topographic Maps in a Web-Based Platform"
5:30 PM at Denver Public Library, 5th Floor, Gates Room
This program is free and open to the community.
Join Geographer Joseph Kerski as we explore 100 years of USGS topographic
maps in ArcGIS Online, a web based platform that allows for the viewing and
exploration of these maps at a variety of scales and with a variety of
tools. These tools include "swiping" the maps to compare maps of the same
area made during different years to analyze land use and land cover change
over time, combining them with satellite imagery and thematic layers such as
ecoregions and geology, embedding these maps in web pages, and adding audio,
video, photographs, and other multimedia in a "storymapping" environment.
Joseph Kerski serves as Education Manager for Environmental Systems Research
Institute (Esri). He served for 21 years as Geographer at the USGS and at
the US Census Bureau. He teaches GIS at the University of Denver, other
universities, in K-12 schools, and in online courses, including MOOCs.
Joseph holds three degrees in Geography. Passionate about spatial learning,
Joseph fosters educational partnerships, promotes GIS in education and
society through service and scholarship, and conducts courses on
geotechnology in education internationally. He creates GIS-based curricula
and conducts research in the effectiveness and implementation of GIS in
