vii) Participate in a GIS project!!! My name is Will Vanderbilt, As a part of a student project in GEOG 506: Advanced Geographic Information Science, I am holding three participatory workshops that will teach you how to use Google SketchUp to redesign a small area of campus according to your own ideas, and share those ideas with your fellow classmates. Your designs will be posted to a web site, and discussed by the other designers. The designs will allow me to evaluate if Sketchup can be used in participatory site design. The workshops will take place in the GIC, at the following times:
7-9 p.m. on Monday the 29th.

If you are interested in participating, and learning the basics of SketchUp, please send an email to will.vanderbilt@mail.mcgill.ca with the workshop times that you are available.This research is being carried out for the GEOG 506 class, and is taking place under the supervision of Prof. Renee Sieber; she can be reached by email at re, nee.sieber@mcgill.ca.
