A grant from NASA’s Earth Sciences Fund will help develop spatial technologies training programs at two US state community colleges.

Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss., announced a $390,000 grant that will allow both schools to conduct training for users of GIS, GPS and remote sensing technologies. Each school will receive $195,000.

Training in these technologies benefits a wide range of users, such as businesses and industries, municipal and other government agencies, utility companies, military, marine, law enforcement and educational entities.
