Remote Sensing for GIS Instructors

published Oct 22, 2012 4:08pm

The National Science Foundation has recently funded a three-year professional development opportunity in remote sensing for GIS instructors, a new phase of the recent "iGETT" project (Integrated Geospatial Education and Technology Training; ATE DUE #0703185). In this new iGETT project, "iGETT-Remote Sensing," 36 GIS instructors from two-year colleges, high schools, and four year colleges in two cohorts, will each participate for 18 months to learn how to analyze and integrate land remote sensing data with GIS for learning and teaching. The National Council for Geographic Education, the U.S. Geological Survey, the GeoTech Center, West Valley College, and NASA are partnering to offer this program. Several of the participants in the iGETT-1 program will be instructing and mentoring new participants.
