Guidelines for CCTP Unit Writers/Editors

The NCGIA Core Curriculum for Technical Programs is a community effort. We thank you in advance for your participation in this project. As a writing team, we will create a resource that should be extremely helpful to all of those who teach GIS in community college and similar institutions and to any one in the GIS community who needs to provide some sort of technical GIS training. We are able to provide compensation, although very limited, to the Unit Writers and Section Editors. Unit writers will receive $100 for a completed unit. Section Editors will receive $100 which is in addition to compensation for writing one or more units of the CCTP. A practical guide for CCTP unit writers and editors and a general philosophy for the project follow.
