2021 marks the 30th anniversary of Dana Tomlin’s appointment to the faculty at the Weitzman School of Design. This virtual event brings together past and present colleagues and former students to celebrate the many ways in which Tomlin, who became professor emeritus of landscape architecture in July, advanced the development and application of geographic information systems, and the careers of hundreds of leading academics and practitioners.
