    Guest speaker: Rosemary Mosher, City of Auburn

    The move toward more online, interactive GIS tools creates an exciting opportunity for municipalities and other organizations to embrace a more data-driven approach to problem solving that improves clarity and transparency, leading (hopefully!) to increased trust and community engagement. Today, the City of Auburn includes a GIS component in nearly every initiative. Join Rosemary Mosher, the City’s Data, Analytics, and Visualization Specialist, as she chronicles her usually successful, often frustrating, occasionally maddening, but rarely boring journey from paper maps, to digital maps, to interactive dashboards and hubs.

    Speaker: Paul Smitherman, University of Maine Fogler Library

    In October of 2019, Raymond H. Fogler Library at the University of Maine received a donation of over 3,000 rolls of film containing about 1 million aerial images from the James W. Sewall Co. in Old Town, Maine. The collection contains original aerial photography of Maine and New England captured by Sewall over the span of 65 years. The archive will offer researchers and the public a vast collection that details changes to Maine’s landscapes and cities over the decades. This talk will provide a brief overview of the collection and its history, and the current status of efforts to digitize the photographs and make them available. A survey will be provided to offer attendees an opportunity for suggestions about potential uses for the images.

    Paul Smitherman is a Library Specialist at Fogler Library where he is a technical adviser in the Special Collections Department, developing solutions to the challenges that archives face in the digital world.
