Smart M.Apps for EDU Education Program

Smart M.Apps for Education

 

Build the M.App of the Future

Hexagon Geospatial invites students, professors, and research scientists to build the M.App of the future. Hexagon Smart M.Apps are not your ordinary static maps – they are analytical services portrayed over a map.

M.App Portfolio is a cloud-based geospatial platform that can be used to design, build and host Hexagon Smart M.Apps and core geospatial web services for building geospatial cloud applications.

The Smart M.Apps for EDU program includes everything you need to build your own Smart M.App.

Smart M.Apps for EDU program also includes Hexagon Geospatial product SDKs and HGDN specific parts of the Hexagon Geospatial Community. Educators, researchers, and students can access Hexagon Geospatial's development toolkits to modify the commercial version of selected software products or develop entirely new applications to extend the capabilities of the software to meet specific project needs.

Training Curriculum Grant Program 2018

Universities participating in any Hexagon Geospatial U Program (including Smart M.Apps) will have an opportunity to compete for four $5,000 grants in 2018 by creating training curriculum. Contact Mike Lane for information and requirements.

DigitalGlobe Foundation Content Partnership

In order to advance technology and continue growth, Hexagon Geospatial has partnered with the DigitalGlobe Foundation to provide academia with the appropriate software to solve real world problems with innovation.

DigitalGlobe Foundation supplies imagery to support educational projects. In conjunction, Hexagon Geospatial will provide free short project licenses to approved students and professors to complete their proposed projects.

Hexagon Geospatial will provide support to determine the pertinent software to use from the Power Portfolio, the M.App Portfolio, and the duration of the license for the extent of the project.

Hexagon Geospatial U

University educators can use the tutorials, presentations, and example data in this community for geospatial technology curriculum and academic research projects.
