It is with great sadness that we inform the GIS community of the death of Mark Becker. Mark passed away on February 26, 2014 in a multi-vehicle car accident in New Jersey. He was the leader of the Geospatial Applications Division at the Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) at Columbia University and will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and colleagues.
Information concerning memorial services will be shared at a later date. People wishing to memorialize Mark consider a contribution to Bergen SWAN (http://www.bergenswan.org), PO Box 217, Westwood, NJ 07675.
