Intergraph® Announces 2014 Geospatial Challenge

Intergraph's Global Education Program Offers Students Chance to Flex Geospatial Muscles

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., June 19, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —  Intergraph® Security, Government & Infrastructure (SG&I) announced its inaugural Geospatial Challenge for students participating in Intergraph's Global Education Program – Intergraph U.  

With the rapidly growing geospatial advancements across multiple industries, Intergraph places great emphasis on involving future generations in key problem solving activities to stay ahead of the curve and prepare them for what's ahead.

In this challenge, students from around the world are asked to submit an abstract describing the scope of a problem, their geographical area of interest, and the dataset(s) and Intergraph solution(s) used. From the abstracts selected, qualifiers will provide a research paper and accompanying video demonstration showcasing how Intergraph software was used to transform their data into actionable information.

Students can enter multiple contest categories based on the platform used (web, mobile or desktop); discipline (GIS or remote sensing); and industry (government, transportation, utilities, communications or emergency response). Intergraph will select winners based on creativity, technique and the tools used.

If a student's submission is selected by the panel of judges, consisting of geospatial executives, partners and attending professors, he or she will receive a $2,500 travel sponsorship to attend the 2014 HxGN LIVE conference, publication in Intergraph SG&I's Perspectives magazine, a trophy and a free one-year license and waived maintenance costs for GeoMedia® Professional and IMAGINE Professional® –offerings from Intergraph's Geospatial Educational Desktop Core.

"The Geospatial Challenge is a great way to get students involved and engaged in the software they already have access to with our Intergraph U Education Program," states Kerry Fehrenbach, Vice President of SG&I Global Marketing at Intergraph. "We've designed this contest to help students get a jumpstart on solving today's problems using the latest geospatial software, and it is a useful tool to prepare them for whatever industry they choose to pursue in the future."

All student submissions will be accepted via e-mail to Email Contact from November 1, 2013 through January 31, 2014. Winners will be announced March 1, 2014.
