ESRI Press donates complete collection of titles to the award winner.

The University of Witwatersrand, School of Geography, Archaeology and Environmental Studies in Johannesburg, South Africa, is the recipient of the 2002 American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) International Education Literature Award.

Each year, a university or educational institution outside the United States receives the award for the purpose of improving the quantity and quality of the literature in its mapping sciences library. The award consists of ASPRS publications including books, conference proceedings, and a five-year subscription to Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing (PE&RS). ESRI Press also supplied a complete collection of its books to be part of this year's valuable literature award. The geography curriculum at Witwatersrand was cited for its support of the geospatial technology program, which registers approximately 260 students each year in eight courses offered at all levels. Three different faculties teach the courses in GIS and remote sensing in the schools of geosciences, engineering, humanities and geography. Currently, the university library supports this student group with 67 books.

ASPRS will present the award during its upcoming conference on April 20-26, in Washington, D.C.
