NSF-ATE sponsored geospatial workshops for Undergraduates gets underway at BGCCCI
The summer 2019 geospatial workshops for undergraduates started on the 3rd June, 2019 at BGCCCI. Participants from colleges in New York City and a few from outside as well will work their way through a series of inquiry-based hands-on workshops that will expose them and train them to work with open source data, perform spatial analysis, change mapping and expose them to the best in the Industry. The participants come from a wide range of STEAM backgrounds are hoping to acquire spatial skills that will enable them to better understand the power of spatial data for making informed decisions. Orienting sessions offered before and during the workshops for instructors and graduates assist them in honing their skills. Since 2010 BGCCCI has been educating and promoting geospatial technology in the region and has grown into a major center of excellence consisting of a unique ecosystem of students, faculty, community, industry and several other important stake holders!
