The MPSGIS program hosted its Fall 2018 Capstone Poster Symposium on November 13, 2018. The Capstone Symposium is held twice a year, in the fall and spring terms, and serves as the final presentation of the graduating MPSGIS class. This term twenty-three students presented their final Capstone projects, which are either research-focused, design-focused, or a combination of both. Of the graduating class, nine of the students were members of the first-ever cohort from the joint MPSGIS program with Nanjing Normal University (One of our NNU students, Haoxue Wang, pictured right, poses with her project). The students completed topics on a range of topics spanning the fields of GIS, remote sensing, and web design. Example project topics included, "GIS-based Landslide Susceptibility Modeling using Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) in Washington, USA" by Nusrat Meghna and "An Open-Source Web Application for Investigating Trends in Global Inland Water" by Margaret Wooten (both pictured below). Congratulations to all of the students in the MPSGIS Fall 2018 graduating class!
