New Hampshire Receives Special Achievement Award for Esri State Partnership in Geospatial Technology

Redlands, California—July 16, 2014— NHGA, NHEdGIS & NHDOE received a Special Achievement in GIS (SAG) Award at the Esri International User Conference (Esri UC) in San Diego, California held July 16, 2014. This award acknowledges vision, leadership, hard work, and innovative use of Esri’s geographic information system (GIS) technology. NHGA, NHEdGIS &NHDOE uses Esri ArcGIS technology to support geographic education in New Hampshire. New Hampshire is a small state with limited capacity for meeting GIS professional development needs, both in terms of population and in the financial support of education. With the invaluable logistical support of the NHDOE, NHEdGIS has gathered experts in classroom instruction, GIS technology, and content from NH public schools, Keene State College, UNHGTTC, St. Anselm College, NHF&G and the USFS. Together, they are able to provide high-quality, meaningful professional development that supports the statewide K-12 license, allowing the many teachers who enthusiastically embraced the opportunity to bring GIS technology to their classrooms. This also creates a network of GIS users in the state that support each other. The statewide GIS license for K-12 education would not have been possible without the collaboration and participation from NHEdGIS, NHGA, NHDOE and many other organizations that have allowed us to present at various state workshops. Organizations from around the world honored at the Esri UC span industries including agriculture, cartography, climate change, defense and intelligence, economic development, education, government, health and human services, telecommunications, and utilities. “The SAG Awards identify the organizations and people that are using the power of geography to improve our world and drive change,” says Esri president Jack Dangermond. “At Esri, we are always... read more
