ASPRS GROUP GEOLEAGUE CHALLENGE

Attention all ASPRS Student Members!!  Register NOW to participate in The Second Annual ASPRS GeoLeague Challenge to be held at the ASPRS 2012 Annual Conference Sacramento, California March 19-23, 2012

 The deadline to REGISTER is November 30, 2011.

 Get your ASPRS Student Chapter involved or form a group of five ASPRS student members at your institution to compete for prizes.

 The Challenge:
To apply remote sensing and GIS to solve vexing problems currently facing Federal, State, and non-profit natural resource managers who need timely information in order to develop policy and monitor the fate of our vital shore and coastal wetlands. Specifically, you are tasked to recommend a “remote sensing remedy,” including sensors and spatial analytical techniques (in a cost- and time-efficient manner) to create coastal wetland inventories that can be efficiently updated at least every 5-10 years.   

 How to Participate:

Form a group of at least 5 geospatial information technology students (undergraduate and/or graduate students) who are ASPRS members and a faculty advisor in your region (if you have trouble meeting this requirement, please feel free to contact us!).  You may also enlist the help of ASPRS members in your surrounding communities; however, the students must do all of the work; non-students can only provide guidance!

 To be eligible to participate, please fill out a registration form and return it to
