Student Volunteers Needed for ASPRS Glossary

Dear ASPRS Student Members,

David Alvarez, Co-Editor of the Glossary of the Mapping Sciences, 2nd Edition, is looking for some volunteer help from ASPRS Student Members to move glossary terms (Excel and Word) from the 1st edition to an Access database.  This will significantly streamline the review process.  David is leading the effort to update the Glossary that was first published in 1994.  In addition to building the Access database, students will be determining the categories where terms should be classified.   Also students would have the opportunity to help with the review of new terms.  Those who volunteer their time will be acknowledged in the 2nd Edition.

Desired qualifications:

  • Must have a good understanding of the geosciences (Surveying, Cartography, Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry, GIS, etc.); 
  • Must be detail oriented and accurate;
  • Must be able to meet deadlines.

Those wishing to volunteer their time should contact David Alvarez at davidalvarez76 (at) gmail (dot) com.

Thank you for assisting us with this important publication.
