We are the UW Geospatial Club, as well as the student chapter of the Puget Sound Region American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) also known as the Imaging and Geospatial Information Society. The club is housed by Dr. Moskal's Remote Sensing and Geospatial Analysis Laboratory at the University of Washington (UW). UW Geospatial Club membership is free and opened to all UW students, staff and faculty as well as anyone else interested in geospatial activities at UW. The ASPRS memebership is fee based and open to all students in the Puget Sound ASPRS Region, we would encourage you to become members of both so that you qualify for the ASPRS scholarships and conference registration discounts.

Our Mission UW Geospatial Club's mission is to promote the use of geospatial tools and technologies at UW. The mission of the ASPRS is to advance knowledge and improve understanding of mapping sciences and to promote the responsible applications of photogrammetry, remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), and supporting technologies.
