Digital Gazetteer Information Exchange (DGIE) Workshop

Index to the Workshop Presentations

The workshop presentations were transcribed from the audiotapes and edited for clarity. The "conversational" tone of the presentations was retained. Illustrations from the presentation slides have been linked at points within the text. Links have also been provided to the full powerpoint presentations when available.

To access the illustrations, we recommend clicking on the links with the right mouse button and opening them in separate browser windows which can be resized so that they don't obscure the text.
