National Geospatial Technology Center (GeoTech Center)
The GeoTech Center hopes to increase the number, diversity, and quality of geospatial professionals through geospatial technology education at the community and technical college level. Transforming the preparation and continuing education of geospatial technicians to meet the national workforce demand will be done by:
§ Creating a national clearinghouse of exemplary geospatial curriculum materials and database Web services;
§ Increasing the capacity to train geospatial technicians;
§ Increasing the quantity, quality and diversity of geospatial technicians to meet U.S. workforce needs;
§ Increasing the number of educators participating in geospatial professional development;
§ Sustaining the Center long-term by seeking collaborations and sources of funding to maintain and improve services and products.
