Registration Deadline December 15 for ASPRS GeoLeague Competition

Reminder: Registration Deadline Tomorrow to participate in  the Second Annual ASPRS GeoLeague Challenge  to be held at the ASPRS 2012 Annual Conference  Sacramento, California  March 19-23, 2012

 Request for Proposal:

Development of a Repeatable Cost and Time Efficient Remote Sensing Solution for Updating the National Coastal Wetlands Inventory

 The deadline to REGISTER is December 15, 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 has been changed somewhat, so please check the complete details regarding the challenge assignment available on line at http://www.asprs.org/Students/GeoLeague-Challenge-2011.html

 The Challenge:
The application of remote sensing and GIS is necessary 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, the main objective of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is 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. Particular concern needs to be paid to the proliferation of invasive species populations in these coastal wetlands.  

 How to Participate:

Form a group of at least 5 undergraduate and/or graduate students and a faculty advisor in your region (at least 3 students must be ASPRS student members by the registration deadline and remain student members through the Annual Conference). 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
