Expand your Redlands School of Business & Society experience with the unique business insights, research, and networking opportunities available only through the Center for Spatial Business.
Spatial business is the application of geographic information systems (GIS) and location analytics to gather business intelligence that can be used for effective decision-making. The integration of spatial business includes gathering spatial location data and organizing layers of information into visualizations like maps and 3D scenes. This data can then deliver powerful insights into markets, customers, services, logistics, supply chains, and asset and risk management. (Source: Esri)
