Women in GISby Linda Loubert
She started this project as a way to recognize women for the role they play in GIS. Women’s History Month is a great time to show the role that women are playing in one of the STEM fields and to encourage more women to be a part of this great field. She teaches GIS to students and she uses it in most of her research.
