Scope and content
This collection is composed of material generated by programs within the Engineering Resource Center: Office of Remote Sensing, South Dakota Space Grant Consortium, South Dakota Local Transportation Assistance Program, University/Industry Technology Service, Publications, and Essential Networking and Training for Entrepreneurship.
The General Records consist of items published by the Engineering Resource Center. Folders contain newsletters and a faculty expertise directory.
The Office of Remote Sensing was established in 1969 as the Remote Sensing Institute. Senator Karl Mundt was instrumental in bringing the program to South Dakota. It is funded by both state and federal funds. Its purpose is to use multispectral remotely sensed imagery and geographic information systems for natural resource studies and mapping projects in South Dakota and throughout the world. This series is composed of correspondence, newsletters, brochures, reports, photogrammetry images and pocket stereoscopes. The pocket stereoscopes are used in reading the photogrammetry, or aerial photographs.
The South Dakota Space Grant Consortium is a program funded in part by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Consortium members are South Dakota State University, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Augustana College and the EROS Data Center. Goals of the Consortium are to create an enthusiasm for aerospace science among students and faculty and to encourage them to pursue careers in related fields. This series is composed of newsletters, research award announcements, and applications and information pertaining to faculty, graduate and undergraduate assistantship awards.
The South Dakota Local Transportation Assistance Program assists local governments with technology and information needed to operate their transportation related agencies. This series is composed of newsletters, brochures, catalogs, and special bulletins.
The University/Industry Technology Service links university resources to industry, business and government to solve technological problems and enhance economic development in South Dakota. This series consists of brochures and programs from symposiums hosted by the University/Industry
The Essential Networking and Training for Entrepreneurship [ENTRE] program provides training for people who may have an interest in pursuing entrepreneurial opportunities. This is an intensive 10-session course that allows participants to test and research their business ideas. The mission of ENTRE is to foster and promote entrepreneurship and economic development in the state and to develop programs for the general business community or various specialty groups. This series consists of a newsletter and a brochure outlining the ENTRE program.
