Do we encourage the next generation of young geospatial professionals to get degrees in specific disciplines such as geology, forestry, urban planning, etc. or do we train them to be "geospatial thinkers" with a degree in GIS? This was the question posed at a panel at last week's Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference. This week we review the panelists' thoughts and offer our opinions.
The 2009 ESRI Survey & Engineering GIS Summit will take place concurrently with the Annual ESRI International User Conference in San Diego, California July 11th to the 14th. Join fellow surveyors, engineers, and GIS professionals to see how others leverage existing investments, hear from industry leaders and explore the latest technology.
