The Geospatial Training Program (GTP) is part of UConn's award winning Center for Land Use Education and Research. GTP was developed in order to provide innovative hands-on training in geospatial technologies to town officials, town staff, non-government officials and governmental agency staff and others. Since 2007, the program has trained over 3,000 individuals in geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), and new, rapidly evolving technologies designed to make maps and geospatial data available on mobile devices and over the internet.
In addition to teaching, GTP educators have conducted research and developed many geospatial web tools, typically in partnership with another agency or another CLEAR program. A few highlights include:
- CT Environmental Conditions Online (CT ECO)
- CLEAR's StoryMap Gallery
- Long Island Sound Watershed's Changing Landscape
- Connecticut Aquaculture Mapping Atlas
- MS4 Mapping Guidelines
