Added by Category: Friday's Food for Thought, General


Welcome to the Friday’s Food for Thought post from got geoint? One can never minimize the importance of education. It is the foundation by which individuals (and our great nation) can further progress into a bright and innovative future. It is safe to say that education makes people’s lives better in sooo many ways. Our readers may have noticed that our recent podcasts have centered around GEOINT and education. Yesterday, we did a podcast with 2010 USGIF scholarship winner Jennifer Veilleux who is a Ph.D. candidate in the geosciences department of Oregon State University. And last week, we did a podcast with Cy Smith, Secretary, Coalition of Geospatial Organizations (COGO) and Max Baber of USGIF who discussed their unique advocacy efforts to support geospatial teachings on K-12 level.
