Teen Science Cafe-Location Is Everything: Using GIS to Map, Analyze, and Assess Real-world Problems


with Tora Johnson

Mar 4, 2017 at 11:30 am, runs for 1 week

What would you do if the Machias dike washed out in a storm? How would you get an ambulance to the hospital? How would you get to the grocery store if you lived in East Machis?

Continuing on the First Responders/Emergency Management themes we began to explore at the Zombie Apocalypse, Dr. Tora Johnson will lead us on a mission to plan routes if a disaster happens in Washington County. 

Dr. Tora Johnson teaches geographic information systems (GIS) and environmental studies and serves as the director of the GIS Laboratory and Service Center at UMM.

Teen Science Cafe: Saturday, March 4

Location: Meet in the UMM Kilburn Commons Dining Hall

University of Maine Machias, 116 O'Brien Ave, Machias, ME

Registration begins at 11:45am followed by lunch. Presentation and activity with Dr. Tora Johnson will be in the GIS Lab in Torrey Hall.
