GeoMedia technology elemental for students learning GIS principles and methodology at Fort Hays State University, Kansas.

Intergraph Mapping and GIS Solutions announced a software grant to Fort Hays State University (FHSU) in Kansas for integrating GeoMedia technology into the university's introductory, intermediate, and advanced geographic information systems (GIS) coursework. The software grant includes 17 licenses of GeoMedia Professional with a value of $127,000.

Students at FHSU will apply GeoMedia technology in learning GIS principles and methodology, spatial analysis techniques, GIS data construction and a variety of other application capabilities. The software grant also lays a foundation that goes beyond the university learning environment. With their completed coursework, students will be prepared to use their training in the workplace and offer informed technology recommendations to employers.

Located at the eastern margin of the High Plains in Hays, Kansas, FHSU's Department of Geosciences prepares geography and geology majors for industry, teaching, and graduate school.
