The Geospatial Technology Steering Committee at James Madison University was established to promote and support the effective use of geospatial technologies and to make connections across the campus to formulate future possible directions of support and development. Interest and use of geospatial technologies at JMU cuts across all of the colleges at the university, representing the liberal arts, social sciences, basic and applied sciences, and professional programs.
