Connecting to people can be as valuable as connecting to resources. It is through human creativity, imagination, and experience that light is shed on the possibilities our vast geospatial capability offers. Consider speaking with our Student Geospatial Consultants to help formulate ideas, joining a UCD-sponsored club to foster multi-disciplinary exchange, or checking out geospatial organizations in the community to broaden your exposure.
