At UNCP, we have access to a wealth of location technologies to support student education and research. Through our endeavor, Spatial@UNCP, we will highlight examples of how you can bring space and place into your class, research, and service, along with some examples of the technologies that we have access to through existing site licenses and free & open source software. You can find recordings here or join us live on Webex on Wednesdays at 11:00AM to ask questions (emails go out weekly to the Faculty Discussion listserv with connection detail, or you can email Jesse Rouse if you aren't on the listserv).
