PROJECTS and PARTNERS
Louisiana Resource Center for Educators
The Louisiana Center for Educators, or LRCE, is dedicated to supporting innovation in education for students, teachers, administrators, higher education and families. LRCE houses a resource library of 70,000+ items which can be searched online. LRCE is a shared resource center for educators in the public, private, parochial, charter, and home school sectors. Additionally, LRCE provides workshops and training for Louisiana's educators, an alternative certification program, and more.
We here at Global Geospatial Solutions have partnered with LRCE to promote the implementation of ArcGIS Online in K-12 schools via a four day workshop. ArcGIS Online is a cloud-based geospatial platform that enables individuals to create and share maps, apps, and map services. Esri will include ArcGIS Online subscriptions in its educational site licenses and online application at no extra cost.

4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization, empowering six million young people throughout the United States. Through America’s 110 land-grant universities and its Cooperative Extension System, 4-H reaches every corner of our nation—from urban neighborhoods to suburban schoolyards to rural farming communities.
With a network of more than 6 million youth, 611,800 volunteers, 3,500 professionals, and more than 25 million alumni, 4-H helps shape youth to move our country and the world forward in ways that no other youth organization can.
GIS Workshops with local 4H volunteers, educators, and club members have been a big hit! Global Geospatial Solutions will also be providing GIS summer camp to those 4H members attending Clover College at Louisiana State University this June.

LSU's Coastal Roots Program
Louisiana State University's Coastal Roots program, headed by Dr. Pam Blanchard and Dr. Ed Bush, is a wonderful initiative to involve Louisiana youth in the restoration and preservation of their forests and coastline. Students from fifty schools across Louisiana are currently participating in the LSU Coastal Roots Program, as well as one school in San Pedro de la Paz (Concepcion), Chile. These students are planting a wide variety of trees and grasses while learning about environmental stewardship and ecology.
