GIS in Education Award

The Delaware Geographic Data Committee (DGDC) honors an educator who has been instrumental in furthering the use of digital spatial data, internet mapping services, or Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Delaware. In 2014, the Delaware GIS Conference expanded to the Delmarva Peninsula, so we accept nominations from the entire Delmarva GIS Community*. This is a great way for Delmarva Kindergarten through College level teachers and students, Girl and Boy Scout Troops, 4-H Clubs and other community organizations to honor their GIS leaders.
