Celebrating Student Achievements 2020–2021

Despite challenges, this past academic year brought a lot to celebrate at the Center for Geospatial Analytics! Below is a sampling of the outstanding work accomplished by the Center’s graduate students since last May. Congratulations to all!

Doctoral Students           

Professional Master’s in Geospatial Information Science & Technology (MGIST) Students

Geospatial Graduate Student Organization (GGSO):

The GGSO is a university-recognized community that supports all graduate students affiliated with the Center, both on-campus and online (M.S., Ph.D., MGIST and Graduate Certificate in GIS). Led by students for students, the GGSO advances networking in the geospatial community, provides a platform for research and offers social events. This year, the GGSO:

  • Coordinated three virtual Lunch & Learn workshops: “Why I do R programming in Visual Studio (VS) Code instead of RStudio,” “Tips and Tricks for Virtual Presentations,” and “Career Pathways in Geospatial Analytics.”
  • Hosted a four-part Race and Place seminar series intended to highlight research that contextualizes race by speaking to environmental justice, equity, diversity and inclusion in the geographical and geospatial sciences.
  • Held a Fall 2020 fundraiser and planned events for GIS Week 2021.
  • Organized virtual game nights and a virtual holiday party to build community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
