Student Competition
Students of geospatial technology in California colleges were invited to submit abstracts and videos for their projects to compete for the opportunity to present at CalGIS 2016. This session features the finalists who will present their work and answer questions from the panel of judges and the audience. Judges will then deliberate and select the winners. Your attention and encouragement for these future GIS practitioners is welcomed
