UT students, with sponsorship from the Department of Geography & Environment, have founded a new student chapter of the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS).  
Founded in 1934, ASPRS is a scientific association serving over 7,000 professional members around the world. The mission of ASPRS is to advance knowledge and improve understanding of mapping sciences to promote the responsible applications of photogrammetry, remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), and supporting technologies. Members work in the fields of Agriculture/Soils, Archeology, Biology, Cartography, Ecology, Environment, Forestry/Range, Geodesy, Geography, Geology, Hydrology/water Resources, Land Appraisal/Real Estate, Medicine, Transportation, and Urban Planning/Development.

Congratulations to everyone for their hard work getting the chapter started! The next meeting will be Monday, February 18, at 5 pm. Contact chapter president Robert Bean for further details.
