Fly-fishing success with GIS

The Adams State University Faculty Lecture Series continues with "GIS and Fly Fishing," by Dr. Rob Benson, professor of earth science, and Dr. Steve Aldrich, associate professor of mathematics. The event begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, in Porter Hall room 130.

Fly-fishing is a well‐known concept, sport, art, science, and general all‐around escape, one that is pursued with varying degrees of success. GIS, on the other hand, has a mystique as one of those mystical, nerdy, techy, gizmo things, even if you know what GIS Stands for. But there is hope for this seemingly unorthodox pairing.
