Michael Goodchild and Don Cooke to be Inducted into URISA’s GIS Hall of Fame

July 25, 2007 (PARK RIDGE, IL) -- The Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) established the GIS Hall of Fame in 2005 to recognize and honor the most esteemed leaders of the geospatial community. To be considered for the GIS Hall of Fame, an individual’s or an organization’s record of contribution to the advancement of the industry demonstrates creative thinking and actions, vision and innovation, inspiring leadership, perseverance, and community mindedness. In addition, nominees must serve as a role model for those who follow. URISA Hall of Fame Laureates are individuals or organizations whose pioneering work has moved the geospatial industry in a better, stronger direction. The first class of inductees included Edgar Horwood, Ian McHarg, Roger Tomlinson, Jack Dangermond, Nancy Tosta, and the Harvard Lab. Last year, Gary Hunter was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Michael Goodchild and Don Cooke will join this esteemed group during the Opening Ceremony at URISA’s 45th Annual Conference in Washington, DC this August.
