CLEAR Geospatial Educator Emily Wilson is being honored as a Connecticut Woman of Innovation by the CT Technology Council. As stated at the CTC website, “the awards program, sponsored by the Connecticut Technology Council, recognizes women in the workforce and at the high school and college levels, who are innovators, role models and leaders in the technology, science and engineering fields.” More on the awards.
Emily and Cary Chadwick comprise the small but powerful CLEAR Geospatial Training Program, which not only trains people in the use of geospatial technologies, but creates cutting-edge web tools like CT-ECO (a partnership with CT DEEP) and the CT Shellfish Mapper (a partnership with the CT Sea Grant Program). Emily also serves as UConn’s representative to the state Geographic Information Systems Council. Fortunately, Emily has just returned from a whirlwind trip to the Oscars, so she has appropriate apparel for CTC’s swanky awards ceremony tonight at the Aqua Turf Club. Congrats, Emily!
