Support Geoporter in its Quest to Teach Geospatial Technology in Costa Rica

Geospatial Educators Opportunities for Partnership Outreach Research and Training (Geoporter) is a program where professional geospatial educators will travel to communities around the world for extended periods to work hand-in-hand with community members to use and apply geospatial technologies to solve local issues and investigate community resources.

The organization launched a crowdfunding project last month to support the education of residents, teachers and youth in a costal community in Costa Rica to use geospatial technologies to investigate, map and make a difference. Unlike the Kickstarter campaigns you may be familar with, this organization receives all funds collected, no matter if it meets its goal or not. That's actually a good thing!

If you are looking to honor someone involved in geospatial education, supporting this effort would be a great option! (Video after the jump.)
