Esri Canada launches new higher education website

December 9, 2016 Krista Amolins

In addition to launching a new website, Esri Canada has created a new microsite for higher education to help students, instructors and researchers at colleges and universities access relevant information and resources. Read this blog to learn more about the new microsite.

As part of the redesign of Esri Canada’s website (esri.ca), two new microsites were launched: k12.esri.ca - for teachers and other users in the K-12 community, which you can read about in this blog, and hed.esri.ca - a higher education microsite for students, instructors and researchers at colleges and universities.

There’s a wealth of GIS information and resources that you can find in the new higher education microsite. These include:

Through the microsite, you can also easily access the Esri Canada GIS Scholarships Web Portal, which showcases current and past scholarship winners and provides information about our scholarship program; and the Esri Canada GIS Centres of Excellence microsite, which provides information and resources for the institutions that are part of the ECCE initiative.
