Clark Labs and UNIGIS Renew Partnership and Software Agreement
On April 26, 2011 Clark Labs and UNIGIS International were pleased to jointly announce their continued partnership to provide students with access to GIS technology.
"UNIGIS is the leading worldwide network of universities offering postgraduate Geographic Information Science and Technology education via open and distance learning. Dedicated to promoting the skills of GIS professionals, UNIGIS and its partner institutions offer internationally recognized programs of study.
In addition to expert faculty and a strong theoretical education, the UNIGIS network provides students with access to state-of-the-art technology and teaching and learning resources that provide hands-on experience designed to meet the needs of the GIS industry.The inclusion of the IDRISI GIS and Image Processing software has been critical to the UNIGIS program as it provides robust yet easy-to-use visualization and analytical tools for satellite imagery.
"Because of its rich and powerful toolset, our students design many projects related to the location of optimal routes, travel costs, and optimal location of elements,"says Anna Szukalska, UNIGIS International Coordinator. "These capabilities, along with the number of tutorial exercises built into the software, makes IDRISI an unsurpassed resource for both students and teachers."
States James Toledano, Executive Director of Clark Labs, "The partnership with Clark Labs began soon after UNIGIS was formed. Our relationship to UNIGIS is based on a mutual commitment to accessible education." Clark Labs maintains similar relationships and/or agreements with other academic institutions"
