Clemson University Center for Geo-spatial Technologies: The GIS Center in Cooper Library has been very helpful for our project. We have collaborated with the GIS Center to develop a GIS application as well as data maps for survey analysis.

CEDC, Clemson Engineers for Developing Countries: CEDC acknowledges the responsibility as global leaders to holistically apply interdisciplinary solutions towards social, environmental, and economic issues to enhance future lives. CEDC partners with Cleamon’s Creative Inquiry program through funding, research, travel, security, and Clemson engagement.

We greatly appreciate all the help we have received from these organizations. Our project would not be possible without them.
