Altamira Technologies Corporation (Altamira) is proud to participate in Giving Tuesday 2016 by supporting the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) EdGEOcation Giving Campaign. Launched earlier this year, EdGEOcation aims to raise $5,000 towards USGIF’s geospatial sciences educational programs by December, 31.
The EdGEOcation Campaign supports USGIF’s outreach efforts that deliver STEM materials to K-12 classrooms, creating interactive learning experiences and encouraging early engagement with geospatial sciences. In collaboration with National Geographic, USGIF has provided giant maps for students K-8 to introduce skills in map reading, geography, and basic satellite imagery analysis.
Contributions also help support geospatial tradecraft by funding scholarships, professional certifications, and academic certificates in GEOINT and related fields. Since 2004 USGIF has awarded over $1 million in scholarships to students pursuing studies in geospatial sciences, as well as data and technologies related to human security. USGIF’s collegiate Geospatial Intelligence Certificate Programs provide a direct path into the professional GEOINT Community for enrolled students. The program offers cross-disciplinary coursework and training that enhances the knowledge and skillsets required in the professional workforce, ensuring that recent graduates and new hires enter the GEOINT industry with confidence.
“This Giving Tuesday Altamira recognizes the importance of supporting STEM educational programs that aid in the continued study and advancement of geospatial sciences. By supporting education, we can strengthen our nation’s future leaders and encourage meaningful engagement with the STEM fields and programs that fuel innovation and ingenuity, driving the future of the Intelligence Community,” said Jonathan Moneymaker, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of Altamira.
Altamira Cares, Altamira’s community outreach program, happily enters the 2016 charitable season on Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving, by contributing to USGIF and the GEOINT Community.
Altamira brings a commercial mindset to solving the most complex national security problems by delivering mission application development, multi-intelligence analysis, cyber operations, and big data solutions to the U.S. Defense and Intelligence Communities. Altamira’s culture of innovation and excellence, and mid-market-size, positions us as the premier next generation leader bringing technology solutions to mission.
