The next Young Professionals Group (YPG) GeoHunt service project will take place on Oct. 16 in San Antonio, Texas as part of the GEOINT 2011 Young Professionals program.

GeoHunt is an educational exploration, similar to geocaching, that introduces children to elements and power of GEOINT in hopes of getting them excited about a future in geospatial intelligence. The experience from this project benefits the GEOINT Community by engaging children in geospatial technologies at a young age. As the YPG further develops this project, the group plans to customize the project for various locations throughout the country.
