iGETT – training the trainers

Attention college faculty, you may be interested in the following announcement:

The Integrated Geospatial Education Technology and Training (iGETT) project offers two-year college faculty professional development opportunities that will enhance existing Geographic Information Systems (GIS) programs by integrating remote sensing and Global Positioning System (GPS) data in ways that support workforce needs. iGETT focuses on moderate-resolution (30 m, 250 m), readily available federal land remote sensing data, such as that from Landsat, MODIS, and ASTER sensors. Topical applications include: forestry, agriculture, disaster management, natural resources management, and urban planning. Faculty who currently teach GIS at two-year colleges located in the United States are eligible to participate in iGETT.

Letters of acceptance will be mailed by March 15, 2008.
