Innovate celebrates GIS/IT Director, Mr. Frank Roberts, for receiving this year’s Excellence in GIS award from the President of Northern Rockies Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA). The award was introduced in 2007 to celebrate GIS professionals in the Northern Rockies region who have made outstanding contributions to GIS and have helped build pathways to lift up and support colleagues and future GIS professionals.
Frank has been an active member of the geospatial community for over 30 years, working with a range of clients from federal agencies to commercial businesses. He was nominated by a colleague who shared Frank’s historical and extremely relevant GIS contributions. For all his achievements, Frank has never lost sight of supporting his local geospatial community.
Congratulations Frank for this achievement and thank you for all your contributions to both Innovate and the geospatial community!
