Regarding the question of GIS education in western universities...

Idaho State Univerity started a 2-year M.S. in Geographic Information
Science program in 2004 and has about 30 students in the program. We also
offer a graduate certificate and undergraduate minor in geotechnologies.
For the very ambitious, we offer a GIS/Geotechnologies emphasis in our PhD
Engineering and Applied Science program. Each program includes opportunities
for emphasis in applied GIS, remote sensing, historical resources management
(through our anthropology department) or GIS software development.. We have
about a 20% acceptance rate for applicants.
