What are your thoughts on starting a GIS Program

This week’s podcast topic is a quick discussion of some of our thoughts on starting a GIS Program. We were specifically talking about academic institutions without any geospatial technology classes, let alone a Geography major, but is an issue for anyone who is doing geospatial training. Since we only have a few minutes to talk about the question in the podcast, we only started talking about the topic. On that note we were wondering what your thoughts on not only figuring out what to teach students, but how to get buy-in from institutions and make connections with others in the field to increase student understanding and knowledge.

Happy t-giving

turkeyIt is time for those of us in the US to sit down and eat too much turkey (gobbler or tofu) with dressing and ALL of the fixings. It is also time to give our thanks for the bounty of the year. Generally it is thanks for the harvest, but since we are not farmers we will point our thanks to you our listeners and readers, our great guests that we have interviewed over the year, and of course thanks to our sponsors who make it possible for us to keep doing what we do. Extra special thanks to those followers and companies that helped us out with our Tweet4Trees campaign.

We hope that everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving! even if you aren’t in the US. 🙂
