MVRPC hosted its second Geographic Information System (GIS) training session on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at Wright State University’s GIS Lab.
The event was a big success, with a total of 17 attendees, 16 of which were from 11 different MVRPC member organizations.
The session was intended for first time GIS users and focused on hands-on learning on how to use ArcGIS Desktop software. MVRPC staff members served as instructors and each participant had an opportuniy to learn how to bring in, manipulate, analyze, and map demographic data using ArcGIS Desktop.

SWOGIS congratulates Kelly Wright on being selected as one of Esri Development Centers 2017 Students of the Year!
The program, launched in 2008, awards 10 winners who develop innovative apps and projects on the ArcGIS platform.
Kelly, who recently earned her Master’s Degree from University of Southern California, was selected for developing “…the Chigoe Flea Eradication Project (CFEP) and Tungiasis eLibrary web mapping applications to raise awareness about, and actively combat tungiasis, a little-known disease of the tropics. The CFEP application serves aid workers and nonprofit organizations developing strategies to manage tungiasis by providing a workspace for the collection of georeferenced demographic and treatment data at the local level. At the global level, the Tungiasis eLibrary accepts data generated by users who 'volunteer' it in the form of their own and others’ tungiasis-related research.”
In December 2016, Kelly was hired by LJB Inc. in Miamisburg, OH, as a GIS Applications Specialist.
Way to go, Kelly!
