URISA’s GISCorps (www.giscorps.org) coordinates short term volunteer GIS services to underserved communities worldwide. Since its inception in October 2003, the Corps has attracted 100’s of volunteers from over 67 countries. To date, GISCorps has deployed over 130 volunteers to 44 missions. These volunteers have contributed over 7,000 working hours in emergency and non emergency response missions including several K-12 projects in the United States, Latin America, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Africa.

The presentation will include information about missions that were implemented in the past 12 months with an emphasis on K-12 related projects.
