4th annual RGi Scholarship awarded to Adrian Seemangal!

Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) is pleased to announce that Adrian Seemangal has been selected as the recipient of our 4th annual $10,000 RGi Scholarship for Geospatial and Engineering, given in partnership with The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF).

Adrian is a junior at The University of Maryland (UMD), College Park, where he is majoring in Geographical Sciences and minoring in Russian Studies.

He first became interested in geospatial sciences through remote sensing, as he was fascinated by the concept of using false-color imagery to reveal information that our eyes cannot see. Upon joining UMD’s geography program, other aspects of geospatial sciences, such as GIS and spatial data science, also captivated him. More recently as an Analytic Methodologist Intern for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), he applied expertise in scientific analysis techniques to inform analysts on various quantitative methods they can use to solve GEOINT issues.

“Adrian is the perfect student to receive our RGi Scholarship, said RGi CEO, Stephen Gillotte. “He’s an advanced thinker who sees a challenge and is excited to create solutions. He’s a leader, a problem-solver, and he’s in it for the greater good. He’s also a martial arts instructor…Adrian does it all! I’m thrilled to have him in our RGi family.”

Adrian’s personal research interests include drone LIDAR mapping, and using artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) for remote sensing. Outside of his educational and professional work, Adrian does undergraduate research in spatial ecology for UMD’s Bill Fagan Lab, and serves as the Vice President of Flower STEM, a club dedicated to showcasing creativity within STEM fields.
