Recently, MAGIP supported the GIS-based student research virtual poster competition at the Montana State University Earth Sciences Student Colloquium (ESSC) by providing two judges and cash prizes to the winners.
The ESSC is an annual event organized and fundraised by graduate students in the Department of Earth Sciences at Montana State University. The public event includes student research talks, a poster session, a raffle, and a keynote address. This year, the event was held online on Thursday and Friday, April 22nd-23rd. The goal of the ESSC is to advance, support, and celebrate student research in the Earth Sciences. GIS is one of the principal academic tracks in MSU's Department of Earth Sciences and is widely applied across all avenues of research in our department -- from geology and paleontology to snow sciences and city planning.
