The Geoscience Information Society's Best Paper Award for 2009 was given to Kathryn Lage's "Zoom! Remote Sensing Imagery in the Geosciences."
Lage is map librarian at the University of Colorado at Boulder's Jerry Crail Johnson Earth Sciences and Map Library. In presenting the award, society committee chair Carol La Russa praised Lage's work as "a very useful, general overview of an important topic, with helpful links to resources." The paper will appear in volume 38 of Proceedings of the Geoscience Information Society.
The society gave out three awards for excellence in geoscience publishing at its recent annual meeting in Portland, Oregon.
