New Mexico Highlands University was awarded a $300,000 U.S. Department of Agriculture grant that will fund a new geospatial technology lab for advanced map making.
Highlands will be the first university in the state to provide this kind of facility for classroom instruction and research.
Geospatial technology includes a wide variety of mapping applications including 3-D terrain modeling, geographic information systems, or GIS, and high-precision global positioning.
