Students from USGIF’s Accredited Programs Win Hexagon Smart M.App Competition

Posted on July 18, 2018 with 0 comments

At USGIF’s GEOINT 2018 Symposium in April, a select group of college students attended a workshop offered by Hexagon Geospatial on its Hexagon Smart M.App platform. The students created an Incident Analyzer View, an interactive map displaying specific incident data while applying critical thinking and analysis skills. After learning how to use the platform, Hexagon Geospatial offered a challenge to the students to create their own map and test their skills with commercial geospatial software.

The two winners of this competition were Carolynne Hultquist with Penn State University and Kevin Mercy with the University of Southern California. Hultquist focused her map on crowdsourced radiation measurements in Fukushima, while Mercy made a map on militarized conflict trends in Somalia.

Hexagon Geospatial published Q&As with both winners. Read about Hultquist’s project and Mercy’s project.
