My grandson Korey just won an award at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City. He and four other students will be traveling in April to L.A. Where Korey will present his thesis, " tracking a wildfire in areas of high relief using volunteered geographic information" The award is from the Hazards, Risks, and Disasters Group, of the Association of American Geographics.
I remember when Korey was here during the wildfire in Colorado. He was texting with his volunteers then. All this have to do with mapping. I will try to put this link in my post, so you could go to a site, to read about this. http://geog.utah.edu/news/korey-klein-award.php Well as many of you know...I am thick as a brick when it comes to computers....this is what I wrote down before I started this post...hope it's right :):)xo
I see you got the email I sent. He told me about it in December but didn't realize it was on the school site. He had a presentation in the Statehouse yesterday and hopefully caught the eye of a director at Utah Emergency Mgmt-where he already has a contact. Hope to send you another link soon as he was photographed by a fashion photographer at Sundance. He is so well connected.ReplyDelete
