CREATE Statement Regarding Harry Bowman

CREATE regrets to inform you that Harry (Hal) Bowman, one of CREATE’s early pioneers, was a victim in the San Bernardino shooting.  Hal was a GIS expert on spatial datasets and maps, and contributed to many of CREATE’s early projects, including the Risk Analysis Workbench, emergency medical supply distribution software and others.  He left CREATE to become an educator in the San Bernardino Unified School District.  His death is a reminder that terrorism can and does strike us all, whether local or abroad.  Our condolences go out to his family.
