Student Poster Contest

We will not have a student poster contest at the 2020 LA-RSGIS since it’s a one-day mini workshop. 

Louisiana Remote Sensing and GIS Workshop presents its annual student poster competition, sponsored by Louisiana View.
Students are encouraged to submit posters depicting their work from class projects, thesis or dissertation work, or individual research.
