I’m off this week to Regina to attend the Prairie Summit, a national convergence of geographers, cartographers, GIS practitioners and other distinguished researchers and scientists. A large conference, I will be presenting a paper on Friday morning with a great panel, including Julia Laforge, Greg Marchildon and Carl Anderson. The discussant will be Robert McLeman of the University of Ottawa.
