After almost 20 years, the research portfolio of the Center for Geographic Information Systems far exceeds the capabilities of GIS. Therefore the Center will continue its research under a new banner, the Center for Spatial Planning Analytics and Visualization.
According to Center Director Subhro Guhathakurta, “The time is right for building a new platform and brand that captures our capabilities and ambitions.”
The Center now has a new name and a leading approach to sustainable urban futures and advancing geospatial technologies. Their research now includes big data, deep learning, immersive visualization, augmented reality, and cloud computing.
The Center will continue its collaboration with other units on campus, including College of Design units, the Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development (CQGRD), the Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access (CATEA), and the School of City and Regional Planning.
