Pioneering ICPSR data steward in Canada calls it a career

As ICPSR Official Representatives and Designated Representatives around the world prepare to head to Ann Arbor this fall for the 2015 Biennial ICPSR Meeting, ICPSR would like to take time to say thanks and congratulations to a longtime ICPSR data steward upon his retirement.

Walter Piovesan, a pioneering data guru at Simon Fraser University, helped shape SFU's and Canada’s digital landscape for almost four decades and is known for his expertise with maps, and GIS. He was also a longtime Official Representative and member of the ICPSR Council from 2004-2008.

Thanks Walter! And best wishes in your retirement.
