The Pacific Southwest Region of the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) has announced that Richard Windisch is one of its scholarship recipients for 2018.
Rich graduated in May 2018 with a B.S. in GeoDesign with a host of honors: recipient of the Order of Troy for academic excellence while devoting extensive time and energy to service out of the classroom, and induction in the Mortar Board National Senior Honor Society for superior scholarship, outstanding and continual leadership, and dedicated service to the university community.
Under the direction of USC Spatial Founding Director and Professor John P. Wilson and GIS Project Specialist Beau MacDonald, Rich and his team members Austin Chow and Haoshi Joanna Wang took first prize of the USC Schwarzenegger Institute Award for their research project “Geospatial Applications for Residential Stormwater Capture for the City of Los Angeles.”
In April 2018, Rich was an awardee of a United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) Golden Ticket, a program which supports young geospatial professionals in their professional development by sponsoring their attendance at the USGIF GEOINT Symposium and arranging for high-level introductions to industry leaders.
Rich is pursuing his M.S. in Geographic Information Science and Technology with the USC Spatial Sciences Institute and will be serving as a student assistant at the July 2018 Esri User Conference in San Diego, California.
