Initiatives support students, faculty, and staff and address data justice
At the Center for Geospatial Analytics, we push the boundaries of geospatial data science to make discoveries and get important work done. Our state-of-the-art Geovisualization Lab features innovative tools and technologies that help stakeholders intuitively interact with spatial data, to explore patterns and make decisions.
Faculty Fellow Katherine Martin and her research team are using the Center’s signature FUTURES land change model to simulate potential new development scenarios throughout the Cape Fear River Basin, to better understand how upstream land-use changes could impact downstream water quality.
Curious about what our newest Geospatial Analytics Ph.D. students work on for their dissertations? Check out how they and their advisors use geospatial analytics to impact a range of fields.
Our researchers plan to use real-time analytics through sensor technology, data mining, remote sensing and modeling to better monitor and predict plant diseases.
From introductory courses up to a doctoral study program, our world-leading faculty guides students through the foundational theory and real-world practice of geospatial analytics.
We design cutting-edge tools and innovative applications of spatial data to inform critical decision-making and deliver actionable solutions for complex problems.
