The University of North Georgia (UNG) was represented at the Georgia Geospatial Conference in Athens, Georgia earlier this month by seniors Luke Shrader and Kristen Miklas.
Shrader was entered in the student map poster competition and won first place in the undergraduate category with his project "Multitemporal Comparison of the Las Vegas, Nevada Urban Area and Lake Mead via Land Cover Classification."
Miklas, the only undergraduate student to place in her category, received third place in the student presentation competition – a combined graduate and undergraduate student category. Her project "Geospatial Model Development for Environmental Management" created a data modeling for hurricane damage.
Both students also served as exhibitors at the conference for UNG’s Lewis F. Rogers Institute for Environmental and Spatial Analysis (IESA). Formed in 2001, IESA brings together numerous disciplines through the synthesis of geospatial science and technology, applied techniques, and theory to address social, human and environmental issues.
