Students can now use basic geographic data on the Department of Geography’s server from laptops in Bierce Library, all of which now come loaded with the ArcGIS 9.x software needed to access and use the Geographic Information System (GIS) data. Access can be gained by linking to file://gismb1/UAGISData from the ArcGIS software.

By using the Bierce laptops (or any computer with ArcGIS software), information such as world data provided by ESRI, world imagery, and Summit County Shapfiles and Imagery, are now readily accessible. Previously, that data could be accessed only from the GIS labs on campus.

"This is a great step forward to expand GIS technology and use throughout campus," said Larry Shubat, associate professor of Surveying and Mapping Technology. Shubat also notes that the maps section of the UA Libraries Web site has excellent resource links to other GIS and map data.

UA's equestrian team will co-host a fund-raising dinner and auction on Friday, June 30 at Stoney Ridge Stables, 2010 Reimer Road in Wadsworth.

The evening, called the Blue Ribbon Event, begins at 6 p.m. Co-sponsored by Stoney Ridge’s interscholastic equestrian team, it will include cocktails, buffet dinner, open bar and a silent auction.

“Our theme will be the Kentucky Derby so attendees are encouraged to dress accordingly,” says team adviser Melinda White, an accountant in the UA controller’s office.

The University’s equestrian team is based at Stoney Ridge. “We’re always looking for more team members,” White adds.

Proceeds from the event will help defray the team’s competition costs. Cost is $50 per person. Reservations should be made by June 23. For more information, call 330-972-2461.


Location: 2010 Reimer Rd, Wadsworth, Ohio
