Kashem receives VR technology grant



Prof. Shakil Kashem received a VR@Illinois Seed Grant to develop teaching and learning materials on integrating Augmented Reality and GIS (AR-GIS). AR-GIS is a new frontier of geospatial technology that can create an immersive data visualization and geo-data validation approach. He plans to work on this project through next summer and will deliver the learning materials to students in his Fall 2020 course: GEOG/ESE 379 - Intro to GIS.
