Key functions of the center, including oversight of the dynamic Geovisualization Lab, are managed by the Assistant Director of Operations, Zachary Arcaro. A friendly group of administrative support specialists also play a vital role in maintaining personnel, financial, travel and other essential records. They are the go-to sources for logistical information for our students, faculty and researchers.

Work with our Service Center

Through our Service Center, government agencies, local companies, and other clients gain payment-based access to resources and expertise at the Center for Geospatial Analytics. The Service Center is overseen by the Assistant Director of Operations and offers a way for external partners to seek technical assistance, data hosting, and training services from our researchers. For example, clients may purchase the time of our resident experts to develop GIS web maps and space on our file servers to archive and display data.
