Geospatial Extension Program

Geospatial Extension Program

Virginia’s Geospatial Extension program encourages the implementation of technology and resources to bridge the information chasm between the efficient management of Virginia’s communities and tools that are often perceived to be accessible only by “technology experts” and to support the needs of Virginia’s geospatial industry and other stakeholders.

While geospatial tools have proven to be a critical element to support the efficient management of Virginia’s communities on many levels, these tools are often perceived to be accessible only by “technology experts”. Virginia’s Geospatial Extension program encourages the implementation of technology and resources to bridge this information chasm and to support the needs of Virginia’s geospatial industry and other stakeholders.

A key and unique component of this program is its integration with Virginia Cooperative Extension through all program areas including Agriculture and Natural Resources, Community Viability, Food and Consumer Science, and 4-H Youth educational initiatives.
