The new high tech education program will provide training for expanding GIS market.

Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions announced it has awarded an Intergraph Education Grant with a total commercial value of more than $773,000 (U.S.) in software and services to the Pacific Center for Advanced Technology Training (PCATT) at Honolulu Community College. The grant program, which recognizes innovative teaching practices and provides teachers and students with the tools needed to explore new possibilities and the power to impact the future of geographic information science, will serve as the foundation of a new high tech education program for GIS training. Sponsored by PCATT, the program will incorporate Intergraph's suite of GeoMedia technology and will include a series of courses at Honolulu Community College beginning this month with GIS Essentials. Additional course offerings will include training in Web GIS, advanced spatial analysis, 3-dimensional GIS modeling, GIS and global positioning systems (GPS) and industry specific applications. The goal of the program is to provide valuable education and training for the rapidly expanding GIS technology market in Hawaii.

Participants in the PCATT GIS program will be eligible to receive funding support through the State of Hawaii Educational Development Fund. In addition to the software and support provided through the grant, Pacific Consulting Services, Inc., an Intergraph Registered Solutions Provider and Honolulu-based GIS, environmental and cultural resources consulting firm, will support the new GIS program by providing course instructors and general software support.
