Nov. 13, 2015 – Professor John McGee received the 2015 Distinguished Geospatial Education Partner Award from the National Geospatial Technology Center of Excellence. He was recognized for his work with the Expanding Geospatial Technician Education Through Virginia’s Community Colleges (GeoTEd) project, a Virginia-focused effort designed to build academic pathways to employment for geospatial technicians through Virginia’s community colleges.

The award recognizes the GeoTEd project, for which McGee is a co-investigator. He shared the award with his co-investigators: Chris Carter (principal investigator), Virginia Space Grant Consortium; David Webb, GeoTEd consultant; Chérie Aukland, Thomas Nelson Community College; and Sandy Stephenson, Southwest Virginia Community College.

“The GeoTEd partnership is thrilled that we have been recognized by this national center as making a significant contribution towards that larger goal,” McGee said. “Geospatial tools can, and are, being used to better understand community efforts to identify and solve local problems and foster local strengths.”
