AAG member Donna J. Peuquet, professor of geography in the Penn State Department of Geography, has been selected as a 2016 Fellow by the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS).

Fellows are individuals who have contributed significantly to the advancement of geographic information science education and research. Peuquet was chosen as Fellow for her research and education contributions to the field of GIScience, as well as her leadership in UCGIS and other geospatial organizations. She will be recognized at the 2016 UCGIS Symposium May 24-26 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“It’s an honor and very flattering to know that my GIScience colleagues value the research I’ve done over the years, as well as my contributions to UCGIS,” Peuquet said.

The UCGIS Fellows Program was created in 2010 to celebrate the extraordinary record of achievements of individuals in a variety of spatial disciplines and communities of practice that use spatial information. Fellows are selected by a review committee comprised of the current UCGIS Fellows and members of the UCGIS board of directors. Learn More.
