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.
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.
Where Fire is a Treatment, GIS Helps Prescribe It
Maps have always been essential to managing fires on public lands. New geospatial technologies go beyond paper maps to help federal agencies like the National Park Service treat and restore fire-dependent landscapes.
A New Way to Help Stop Insect Pests in Their Tracks
The spotted lanternfly is one of many invasive insect pests causing economic and ecological damage in the US. A new geospatial decision-support tool developed at NC State is helping managers to curb their spread.
Partnership with Wake County a New Think (and Do) Tank for Harnessing Spatial Data
Through a new partnership called Geo-IDEAS, NC State’s Center for Geospatial Analytics and Wake County government are innovating the future of spatial analysis and decision-making.
InVision Raleigh Collaboration Wins Special Achievement in GIS Award
A groundbreaking collaboration between the Center for Geospatial Analytics and City of Raleigh is one of this year’s honorees.
National Park Service Honors Center Web Mapping Team
The National Park Service recognized a Center for Geospatial Analytics team led by research associate Justin Shedd for collaboratively developing web maps that integrate data across parks in the Mid-Atlantic.
Center Researchers Analyze Effects of Climate Change with Lenovo and Artificial Intelligence
The Center for Geospatial Analytics is partnering with the Lenovo Artificial Intelligence Innovation Center to leverage AI and geospatial image analysis to preemptively identify agricultural areas and crops that will be affected by flooding or droughts.
InVision Raleigh Lets Urban Planners See the Future
Center researchers led by faculty fellow Perver Baran partnered with a team from the City of Raleigh to create a revolutionary 3-D tool on the web for visualizing development alternatives.
