Summer of Maps and other Education GIS News

It's time again for Azavea's Summer of Maps, per Robert Cheetham, the CEO.

I am pleased to announce the 2013 Azavea Summer of Maps.  Summer of Maps offers fellowships to student GIS analysts to perform geographic data analysis for non-profit organizations.  We are going to match up non-profit organizations that have spatial analysis and visualization needs with talented students of GIS analysis to implement projects over a three-month period during the summer.

The project, administered by the Virginia Space Grant Consortium, will establish academic pathways in geospatial technologies (such as geographic information systems, global positioning systems, and remote sensing). These academic pathways will serve as model programs for other community colleges nationally.
