Pictometry is Educational Sponsor at Conference and other Education GIS News

@Pictometry posted on Twitter:

Students from the NYS GeoSpatial Summit 2012. http://t.co/qqobCZdm

I looked around and learned Pictometry was the "Educational Sponsor" for the event. What does that mean? I dug up a post from Bruce Oswald in which Bill Johnson explains:

Great news for students:  Pictometry International has agreed to be a Gold Education Sponsor for the upcoming NYS GeoSpatial Summit!  This additional sponsorship is enabling us to reopen the student registration rate of just $30 to attend the Summit.  This compares with the regular registration rate of $145.  We had a such a strong response to the initial subsidized student registration that we had to close the student rate when we reached 25 students.  We are pleased to now allow an additional 10 students to be part of the GeoSpatial Summit.  

That's a nice way to support education! Can your organization help one or more students get to a professional conference?

A nearly AU$7 million grant to the University of Wollongong from the Australian Research Council (ARC) will fund geospatial research, among other things.

AidData [ project at the College of William and Mary] received the five-year, $25 million award as part of USAID’s Higher Education Solutions Network Program to establish institutional partnerships for global development initiatives. The College is one of seven institutions chosen out of a pool of 500 applicants. Other institutions selected include Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of California-Berkeley, Texas A&M University, Michigan State University, Duke University and a university in Uganda.

With the money, the College will take the lead in creating the AidData Center for Development Policy that will use geospatial data to create open-data collections which track the impact of foreign aid. The College will collaborate with Development Gateway, Brigham Young University, the University of Texas at Austin, and Esri, a Global Information Systems technology company.
