The future of the Institute for the Application of Geospatial Technology at Cayuga Community College is in question following the resignation of its president and CEO, Bob Brower.
The institute began as a nonprofit organization in 2003, and utilizes Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology to do things like digital mapping, collecting geospatial data and remote sensing, to name a few. NASA, the U.S. Geological Survey and the state Department of Environmental Conservation have been some of the organization's collaborators.
Brower has spearheaded IAGT for the last approximately 15 years, but he said he was ready to retire. The organization's board, he added, accepted his resignation at the end of June, but he's still working in a volunteer capacity.
