College of the Atlantic, GIS Situation Assessment and Strategic Plan
CLIENT: College of the Atlantic
LOCATION: Maine, USA
STARTING YEAR: 2003
The College of the Atlantic (CoA) commissioned GPC to assist them in the development of a new vision for GIS at the school. While the CoA had developed a significant GIS lab and was offering GIS training to complement many of its regular classes, the school was interested to expand the role of geospatial thinking and technology across many disciplines, and in the development of an applied research group. GPC facilitated several workshops and meetings with the College’s Administration and Professor’s, and based on this developed a new envisioning document, strategic plan, an implementation approach, and a business development approach for securing research grants and project funding to support an expanded GIS Lab.
