The GeoPhilly meetup would like to invite planners to GeoPhilly film night. This screening of short archival films related to mapping, cartography, and planning from as early as the 1940s. “Data for Decision” (1967), our feature for the evening, focuses on Roger Tomlinson (the “Father of GIS”) and the first ever use of digital analytical map making. Other films will feature WW2 era cartography, challenges of non-digital map projections and how to deter everything from boredom in suburbia to mob fights through proper planning. This event is part of Philly Tech Week. Drinks and snacks will be for sale.
