UWF is the only University in Florida designated as an ESRI Development Center (EDC). The EDC program confers special status and benefits upon a select few leading university departments that challenge their students to develop innovative applications based upon the ArcGIS platform.


Announcements

The University of West Florida's GeoData Center was awarded a $30,000 through the Gulf Power Amplify Grant Program. This money will be used to help students with the Washington High School's Marine Science Academy map data they collected on Bayou Texar. The MSA students have been collecting the data since 2013. The hope is to create a map to make the public aware of the environmental impacts on Bayou Texar.
