USF recognized for geospatial sciences program

TAMPA, Fla. -- The University of South Florida was one of 17 academic institutions selected for the Centers for Academic Excellence in Geospatial Sciences program, a joint endeavor of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Geological Survey.

By cultivating centers of academic excellence in geospatial sciences, content processing, tradecraft methodologies, and research and development technologies, the CAE Geospatial Sciences program aims to invest in the future geospatial workforce. The program provides National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Geological Survey the ability to assess USF’s geospatial science curricula and allows the agencies to attract a broader array of geospatial intelligence, expertise, research and development, and talent sources for current and emerging critical mission challenges.

USF and the other selected institutions will be acknowledged in a ceremony at the 2015 USGIF GEOINT Symposium, June 22, at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
