Andrew Byron's poster on a GIS-based iphone application was a real hit at the conference.

The sixth annual Midwest Undergraduate Geography Symposium was hosted by Macalester College on April 24, 2010. Students from six colleges and universities in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois attended the day’s celebration of geography. Andrew Byron and Matt Horton of Gustavus presented their senior thesis research. Andrew’s talk was titled, “Hydrologic and Meteorologic Reconstruction of the 1965 Minnesota River Floods,” and Matt Horton’s talk was “An Examination of Regional Malls in the Western Suburbs of Minneapolis.” Andrew Byron also displayed his research poster, “Integrating GIS Functionality into Mobile iPhone Applications.” In addition, Vinai Vang, Emily Kendall, Kelsey Bruegger, Anna Versluis and Mark Bjelland attended the event. Next year, Gustavus Adolphus College will host the symposium.
