The Center for Applied GIS is an interdisciplinary research center that addresses pressing global resource and sustainability concerns
through analysis of human-environment interactions at multiple spatial, temporal, and decision-making scales.
We resolve complex questions
by integrating theory from the geospatial, natural, and social sciences coupled with advanced modeling techniques and high performance computing.
Our integrated approach - synthesizing field,
laboratory, social survey and remote sensing data - allows us to
pursue a range of research frontiers including:
