Maptitude Team Provides Sponsorship for the Fifth FSU Geospatial Awareness Week & GIS Day 2021

NEWTON, MA (USA) – The Maptitude Team continues its annual sponsorship of FSU GIS Day.

For the fifth year in a row, the Geospatial Science and GEOINT program at Fayetteville State University celebrated its Geospatial Awareness Week and GIS Day (GeoWeek 2021) with multiple activities between Monday 11/15 and Friday 11/19/2021, in concert with the national Geography Awareness Week. The event aimed at raising and advancing the awareness of spatial thinking, and geospatial technologies and tradecraft, across the campus as well as locally in Fayetteville and its surrounding community. Due to COVID-19, all activities of the event were conducted virtually.

The topic of GeoWeek 2021 was Geospatial Science and Technology and GEOINT in Education and Practice. The event featured five keynote presentations, two panel discussions, geospatial technology presentations, career development talks, and a photogrammetric workshop that were provided by distinguished faculty and professionals from academia, government, and industry. To encourage geospatial research in students, especially underrepresented students, GeoWeek 2021 continued the tradition of the “Geospatial Student Presentations Competition”. Winners for the first, second, and third place awards were announced, as well as for the People’s Choice award. GeoWeek 2021 concluded with the FSU Geospatial Alumni and Friends Summit where open conversations between geospatial alumni and current students were made. Recordings of the event were made available here.

The Maptitude mapping software team is proud to have provided the donation for the event. The sponsorship helps Fayetteville State University by supporting an event that will raise awareness of spatial thinking and enhance geographic literacy, providing the geospatial skills that are increasingly in demand during the globalization and information era.
