GS student travels to Vietnam
JMU's Center for International Stabilization and Recovery (CISR)
Cory Rahman (’16) got the opportunity to aid mine action organizations in Vietnam with using geographic information systems (GIS) technology in their processes for clearing explosive remnants of war (ERW) hazards in the country. This hands-on application of geography to a real-world application provided both a tremendous learning opportunity for Rahman, as well as important service to the Vietnamese people. His work on humanitarian GIS was made possible by JMU’s Center for International Stabilization and Recovery (CISR) and JMU Geographic Science faculty through a project sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.
