The GIS Lab Upgrades its Storage Capacity
This April the GIS Laboratory upgraded its storage capacity with the addition of

CSRC Paddles the Saco again on it's Fifth Annual Canoe Trip
Once again an adventure bound crew of seven employees from CSRC faced the mighty Saco river this August during this year's fifth annual canoe and kayak paddle. This adventure bound crew included Ellen Douglas Jason Ericson, Emily Faivre, Faith Gathui, Stanley Glidden, Ambele Mtafya and Michael Routhier. This group of fun seekers made it down the Saco in two canoes and two kayaks stopping along the way for a hearty lunch, some fun stories and few photo opportunities. After conquering the river the weary group relaxed with a great dinner and massive desserts at the Yankee Smoke House in Whittier, NH. If you're interested in joining the next adventurous group from CSRC on their next adventure keep your eyes on this web site for upcoming info.

The attendees from Complex Systems included Jennifer Lessard, Sam Lingeman, Michael Routhier and Fay Rubin. All members were hosted to a series of professional talks and to a huge vendor hall featuring some of the GIS industry's top sellers and resellers of hardware, software and spatial data products.
This October a group of six CSRC members, Family and Friends all went on an outdoor excursion to the White Mountains on one of the most beautiful Autumn day's this season.

This leaf peeping group visited North Conway, The White Mountain Valley, Crafford Notch State Park, Willey's Pond, Franconia Notch State Park, the Flume Gorge, the Kankamangus Highway and Rocky Gorge. To finish off the day this well traveled group stopped at their favorite familiar Bar-B-Que restaurant, the Yankee Smoke House in Whittier, NH for a great ending meal to what one can only describe as a day that will last in all of their minds for the rest of their lives.
