Congrats to Our December 2019 Graduates!
At December graduation, 45 members of the Center for Geospatial Analytics community will be recognized for completing their graduate programs.
Partnerships in Geospatial Problem-Solving
During their final semester, each master’s student in Geospatial Information Science and Technology completes a service-learning capstone project, working directly with a community or industry partner to solve a geospatial problem. This season, we celebrate the work of our December graduates.
UAVs and Christmas Trees: New Research to Help NC Growers Benefit From Drone Technology
A new partnership between NC State’s Christmas Tree Extension Team and Center for Geospatial Analytics will test how unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs, or drones) can help NC Christmas tree growers more efficiently monitor tree size and health.
Multiple New Research Positions in Spatial Data Science Now Accepting Applications
Multiple new positions for postdoctoral scholars, research scientists and Ph.D. students are available at the Center for Geospatial Analytics to work on a variety of funded team-science projects. Review of applications will begin January 20.
Custom Geospatial Tool Helps National Park Service Better Predict Fire Risk on Florida’s River of Grass
In the Everglades’ vast wetlands, fire spread depends on water levels. A custom geospatial tool created at the Center for Geospatial Analytics is helping the National Park Service quickly and easily map water levels––and better manage fires––across south Florida.
Meet Anna Petrasova and Vaclav Petras, Geospatial Research Software Engineers
As geospatial research software engineers, Anna Petrasova and Vaclav Petras are expanding the capabilities of Tangible Landscape and other geospatial technologies at the Center for Geospatial Analytics, with a focus on open science and open source.
In the Battle Against a Spreading Forest Disease, Strategy Matters
Predicting and controlling the spread of disease requires the right geospatial tools. At a recent gathering of the Oregon Sudden Oak Death Task Force, over thirty representatives of government, academia, nonprofit groups and the timber industry experimented with two Center for Geospatial Analytics technologies that can help them do just that.
Introducing the Center for Geospatial Analytics’ Strategic Research Areas
Researchers at the Center for Geospatial Analytics harness geospatial data to push the boundaries of data science, make new discoveries and solve problems. Our five signature research frontiers define how we transform data into knowledge and results.
Meentemeyer Named Goodnight Distinguished Professor of Geospatial Analytics
Dr. Ross K. Meentemeyer, Director of the Center for Geospatial Analytics, has been appointed the Goodnight Distinguished Professor of Geospatial Analytics, recognizing his extraordinary work and commitment to advancing the field of geospatial analytics.
Celebrating Our Community
At its first Awards Banquet on October 26, the Center for Geospatial Analytics honored students, faculty and staff for their achievements and presented five new CGA Awards.
