Dr. David W. Gibson Endowment for Geomatics
This endowment supports students and faculty in the Geomatics program of the School of Forest, Fisheries, and Geomatics Sciences (SFFGS) as determined by the Director of SFFGS; including but not limited to scholarships, fellowships, and equipment upgrades.
David Gibson was the founding director of the Geomatics (Surveying) Program at the University of Florida. He remained a member of the faculty for 40 years and continued teaching until 2014, six years after his formal retirement. To honor Dr. Gibson’s legacy, many of his former students and friends established this endowment.
