GIS Student Video: Washington College GIS Program Provides Hands-On Training for Students

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

College students are the foundation for the next generation of geospatial leaders.  Fortunately, academic programs provided by colleges and universities like Washington College provide an opportunity for students to get real, hands-on GIS experience that will help them transition into fruitful careers in our sector.

One of the more interesting projects that Ms. Riehl worked on was restoring historic map of Chestertown, Maryland.  She spent many hours not only completing the restoring of the map to its original quality, but also coloring the map to give it a realistic touch.

Washington College is a small liberal arts college in a historic town that fosters a strong community and passion amongst its alumni.   In full disclosure, I am a 1993 graduate of Washington College.  Unfortunately, the college did not have a GIS program at the time, which further reinforces how much the geospatial sector has grown over the past 20 years.
