Museum Lecture on GIS Systems
Jonathon Corbridge of ESRI in Redlands will discuss "GIS for Museums" at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands on Wednesday, March 23 at 7:30 p.m. This guest lecture is open to the public at no charge.
Mr. Corbridge will present a primer on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) with a focus how this technology is being used by museums. Satellite imagery, 3D models, sonar data, radar data, historical maps, aerial photography, and precise field measurements are being brought together within GIS. This technology is providing researchers, collections managers, interpreters, and display artists new, almost limitless ways to manage, understand and share information. Corbridge will look at some examples and introduce some special guests in the GIS community.
Mr. Corbridge's academic background includes geography and anthropology studies at Cal Poly Pomona. An experienced speaker, he has been a guest at universities and colleges in Fresno, Monterey, Santa Cruz, Stockton, Fresno, Bakersfield, Riverside, Palm Desert, and the greater Los Angeles area. He has been with ESRI for more than 10 years, with over eight years experience working with government and academic institutions throughout California. He has contributed maps and graphics for anthropology textbooks; has written for ArcUser, an ESRI technical journal; and has taught GIS workshops in San Diego, Hawaii, and Sacramento. He is currently ESRI's Account Manager for the Los Angeles area.
