Society for Conservation GIS 2007

Each year, the Society for Conservation GIS conducts a competitive international review of folks using computer mapping and GIS to help conservation, sustainable development and indigenous rights around the world. We select the top 15 finalists for a scholarship award allowing them to attend 4 weeks of specialized training in conservation science, computers, GIS, GPS, and imagery. Honorees will also present papers on their work at the annual SCGIS meeting and the annual ESRI International Conference,
