UH Maui College students earning Certificates of Competence in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Ecosystem Management will share final projects including endemic Hawaiian tree snail populations in Maui County, energy efficiency mapping, and effects of East Maui Irrigation seepage on stream health. “The GIS Certificate program has given me the freedom to choose where I would like to go in my education and has opened new career options for me,” said UHMC student Heather Kotok. The student presentations will offer the opportunity for interested employers, internship sponsors, prospective students, and community organizations to learn more about GIS. “A world of opportunity awaits people developing skills in GIS,” said Craig Clouet, Solutions Engineer at Esri, a global GIS software company with an office in Honolulu. “Many jobs use GIS extensively, and Esri supports that Maui College has been so proactive in educating and promoting GIS to their students. Students leaving the program with these abilities can go anywhere to meet the needs of both existing jobs, and those not yet invented,” he said. GIS skills are in high demand on Maui through the growing high-tech industry. “At the Pacific Disaster Center, we are currently using GIS to help coordination of international disaster relief operations in Nepal by producing maps ranging from damage assessments to the location of international Search And Rescue teams. GIS is an integral part of the technologies employed at PDC for disaster risk reduction,” said Ray Shirkhodai, Executive Director.
