Thank you to all of the parties who submitted applications for the inaugural 2016 NWGIS teaching grant! The grant applications covered a wide-range of topics and it was very interesting to learn more about what our teachers and professors are exploring with GIS and geography.
Congratulations to our winners - Professors John Ritter and Jack Walker from the Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT)! The professors will receive $5,000 for the purpose of acquiring UAS software from Pix4d. The software will be used by the professors to process imagery for classroom demonstrations, exercises, and projects for the GIS classes they teach at OIT. This software acquisition is expected to impact up to 240 students with various majors including GIS/geomatics, environmental science, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, and renewable energy.
Please join us in congratulating the professors at the NWGIS User Group Meetup event at the 2016 ESRI Conference!
