Center for Spatial Studies

The mission of the Center for Spatial Studies (CSS) is to help faculty and students think and act spatially, using geographic information systems (GIS), the Global Positioning System (GPS), remote sensing, photogrammetry, scientific image analysis, concept mapping, emerging cloud tools for integrating narratives into visual representations, and other modalities.

The CSS supports faculty and student efforts to measure, interpret, and think critically about spatial patterns in data from nanoscales to the cosmos; to visualize the consequences of alternative futures; and collaborate to make better choices for our planet and ourselves. Visit the CSS website learn more about its mission and activities.
