The Howard T. Fisher Prize Awarded for Second Year
The Howard T. Fisher Prize for excellence in Geographic Information Science was established in 1999 by the Harvard University GIS User's Group, to promote and reward student work in this broad and potentially interdisciplinary area from both undergraduate and graduate students at Harvard University.
Howard Fisher founded the Laboratory for Computer Graphics and Spatial Analysis at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design in 1965.
"As a geographer and mathematical cartographer, Howard Fisher was a key person who influenced my life at Harvard," says Esri President Jack Dangermond. "The laboratory he founded was where many original ideas for GIS started."
The Committee of the Howard T. Fisher Prize in Geographic Information Science, Harvard University, is pleased to announce two recipients of the award for the academic year 2000-2001:
