More Mongolian Universities

Now I will also be speaking at the Mongolian University of Life Sciences (ХААИС) on Thursday, May 11, and at Mongolian University of Science and Technology (ШУТИС) on Friday, May 12.  That gives me the chance to post their logos here:

I will be posting presentation materials and some reflections later on.

Mongolia GIS

While researching my upcoming Mongolia trip, I was amazed to discover a treasure trove of Mongolian data already at Rutgers.  Christopher Free, a quantitative ecologist, studies Mongolian fisheries, and is an R and GIS expert to boot.  He has compiled a one-stop archive for Mongolian GIS data and R courses that use Mongolian fish data as examples [much better than sports statistics!].

These are exactly the kinds of global connections I am delighted to make!
