Dr. Barbara (Babs) Buttenfield was awarded the CaGIS Distinguished Career Award. We congratulate Babs on this very well-deserved recognition of her amazing career and significant contributions to the cartography and GIScience disciplines.
A CaGIS Rising Grant was awarded to the project, “Characterizing and Promoting Cartography and GIS Graduate Programs through Research Theme Discovery and Online Seminars.” Students involved in the project are: Yuhao Kang, Yanbing Chen, Bing Zhou, and Zhining Gu. Advisors are Song Gao, Lei Zou, and Wenwen Li.
CaGIS Rising projects include research or outreach efforts that have the potential to transform global challenges into new opportunities that advance and promote Cartography and GIScience. Creativity, novelty, and the potential for broader impacts to society constitute key criteria for evaluating these proposals for funding.
