GIS Skills Competition for Undergraduate Students
GeoTech Center Offers Opportunity for Undergraduates to Showcase their GIS Skills
Undergraduate students in the U.S. currently enrolled in a geospatial technology course are encouraged to enter the 2016 Undergraduate Geospatial Technology Skills Competition organized by the GeoTech Center. Students are challenged to use geospatial technology (GIS, remote sensing, UAVs, GPS) to address a real-world problem and convey the results of their work through a poster format. Members from the professional geospatial community will judge student projects on their “project design, organization, analysis, and overall presentation quality” (an official rubric is available online). Three to four winners will be selected for an all-expense-paid trip to San Diego, California, for the 2016 Esri User Conference where their posters will be displayed as part of the Conference’s map gallery. Competition submissions are due by midnight (EST) on Friday, April 29. See the GeoTech Center’s competition announcement for more details on how to enter.
