Geodesign Summit in Redlands CA

Christine Wacta and Kya Dickson (INDS student, research assistant and president of our newly
created Geospatial Student Chapter (GSC@GSU)), presented their research at
the Geodesign Summit in Redlands CA in April 2023.

The CEO of ESRI waited for them and spent 10 to 15 minutes praising them in the innovative initiative and how they did something he has not seen before using the geospatial  tools.

Dr. Wacta said “We were honored to get a “GRADE A” from Dr. Carl Steinitz (on one of the photos) a professor emeritus from Harvard who promised to send us his phd as it touches the essential topic we presented. Dr Carl is with Bill miller the two who started the Geodesign approach 14 years ago. Please do not hesitate to congratulate Kya, she was so eloquent and moved the entire crows of professionals present.”

We are so proud of you both!!!!
