GEAR lab member, Bing Zhou, was awarded the CaGIS Rising Grant ($10,000) as a Co-PI. The project is named :"Characterizing and Promoting Cartography and GIS Graduate Programs through Research Theme Discovery and Online Seminars." Students involved in the project are: Yuhao Kang, Yanbing Chen, Bing Zhou, and Zhining Gu. Advisors are Song Gao, Lei Zou, and Wenwen Li.
In this project, we aim to address the above challenges by answering two research questions:
(1) What are the characteristics and features of each Cart/GIS graduate program, such as
focused research themes, prestigious programs, and research areas of faculty members?
(2) What resources and tools are needed to help students find appropriate Cart/GIS programs?
Framework of the proposed study
Congratulations to the GEAR Lab members, and we look forward to hearing more achievements from GEAR Lab! Gig'em!
