Learn about the possibilities of National Geographic supporting you at UW-Madison! Join National Geographic staff and grantees for a workshop, networking, and lunch today and tomorrow!
National Geographic is coming to UW-Madison to share insider tips with students (graduates and undergraduates), and faculty on how to apply for their grants… and you’re invited!! They will share what a successful application looks like, and why many applications miss the mark. Additionally, you’ll be invited to network with National Geographic grantees and staff.
Earth is a big place. Few people know that as well as Jaime Martindale, map and geospatial data librarian at the Arthur H. Robinson Map Library at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
But — with hundreds of thousands of maps and aerial photos, bound atlases and gazetteers and surveys at her fingertips — Martindale can find things. Even things that aren’t there anymore.
Tom Sybert came to Martindale looking for something huge, but long gone: a 130-ton B-52 bomber that crashed in the dark on Nov. 18, 1966, near unincorporated Hauer in Sawyer County in northwestern Wisconsin.
