Where in the World?

Here is the map I made of the countries of origin for the students I spoke to last Friday.

Guest Lecture at UW

On Friday I gave a talk to my friend Mihaela's class (and her colleague's class) at the University of Washington. She teaches non-native English speakers, and towards the end of the course invites a variety of guest speakers to help her students build their comprehension of academic lectures. I talked about mapping, and gave an overview of the clients I work with, the types of projects I do, and where the data come from. They were attentive listeners and asked some great questions at the end.
These are the fine people who listened so attentively to my talk about maps

After the Q & A I offered to make a map showing all of the countries represented by the two classes in attendance. I'll post that here later this week when it is finished.
