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.
Geospatial Analytics Ph.D. candidate Laura Tomkins developed a new way for meteorologists and atmospheric scientists to quickly and easily distinguish heavy snow from mixed precipitation in weather radar imagery, to improve understanding of snowfall during winter storms.
With remote sensing, Ph.D. student Katie McQuillan is uncovering how climate change is affecting the water budget in mountain forests.
As climate change and urbanization increase the risk of flooding across the US, millions remain unprotected. Center for Geospatial Analytics researchers are working to solve that problem.
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.
