The strategic vision of the Center for Geospatial Analytics is shaped by an interdisciplinary group of forward-thinking faculty, staff and community partners, led by director Ross Meentemeyer and his team of associate directors.

Our diverse leadership leverages unique expertise to build a community of researchers and scholars who strive to push the boundaries of geospatial thinking. In addition to center Director Ross Meentemeyer, three associate directors work to advance the mission of the center: 

Dr. Meentemeyer and Dr. Vatsavai joined NC State as part of the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program cluster in Geospatial Analytics. As the hub for the cluster, the center serves as a go-to place for interdisciplinary solutions to complex problems. The center director and associate directors are also supported by two directors emeritus, who continue to expand the center’s legacy both nationally and internationally, and an External Advisory Board that provides valuable input and guidance.
