Intergraph technology enables students to acquire needed geospatial knowledge and skills for the workforce.

Intergraph Mapping and Geospatial Solutions today announced a GeoMedia software grant to be awarded to the Geomatics Institute at Fleming, a newly established academic wing devoted in part to geographic information systems (GIS), cartography, remote sensing and surveying at Fleming College in Lindsay, Ontario, Canada. The grant, valued at more than $1.4 million (Canadian), includes licenses of GeoMedia Professional and GeoMedia WebMap Professional as well as training, support and maintenance. The software will primarily be used by students and professors for demonstrations and projects in the college's Cartographic Specialist Program, with future implementation in additional curriculums.

Intergraph and Fleming College have enjoyed a long and productive relationship working together to promote the best practice of cartography and GIS technology in the classroom in an effort to prepare future professionals. In addition to providing support and training for college faculty and staff since 1998 in order to keep teachers and support personnel up-to-date on the lastest GIS principles and methodologies, Intergraph has awarded six Intergraph Innovative Map of the Year Awards and three International User's Group Graphic Arts Awards among Fleming College graduates.

"This gracious donation by Intergraph will enable Fleming College to continue providing leading-edge geospatial technology to our students, helping prepare them to enter the workforce with the knowledge and skills needed to propel this industry forward," said Hardy Kraft, project manager, Geomatics Institute at Fleming. "The popularity of Intergraph in various municipalities and asset management agencies indicates a strong need for graduates in the field of geomatics to possess skills directly related to the use of GeoMedia technology, and we are extremely delighted to provide our students with this capability."
