(A Woman’s) Cartographic Perspective
Presenter: Vanessa Knoppke-Wetzel,
Women (and minorities) often stay quiet about microaggressions and assumptions made in school and the workplace. These, and moments of impostor syndrome experienced, are often not widely discussed. As such, I wanted to share a few of my personal experiences as a student, professional, and conference attendee, and what, over time, I’ve learned to change in both my internal and external responses. I hope this adds to the many wonderful open discussions NACIS goers have, and encourages others to discuss theirs.

The new LGBT neighborhood: Everywhere
Presenter: Jeff Ferzoco, CARTO
In the past few decades, your city’s LGBT neighborhood has changed. Traditionally, gay neighborhoods were in clusters, making them centralized and secure. In recent years a variety of cultural, social and economic factors have distributed LGBT people widely across cities and regions. This shift has inspired mapping explorations of the history and current state of the American LGBT landscape—using historical texts, gay guides and data. This talk will look at the mapping projects being built to understand the new spatial distribution of the LGBT community—and those efforts can be used for other communities.
