Center for Geospatial Research

Globe w/ binary

Our Mission - The Center for Geospatial Research (CGR) promotes geographic thinking and the application of geospatial technology in interdisciplinary research, education, and public service. We apply our history of expertise in remote sensing, photogrammetry, GIS, geovisualization, and field surveys to uncover the spatial aspect in any research. Our internationally recognized work in natural and cultural resources, terrain analysis, and spatio-temporal modeling addresses critical and contemporary issues in human and environment relationships.

The specialties of the Center's multidisciplinary staff that encompass the full range of geographic information science include remote sensing and digital image processing, digital photogrammetry, image interpretation, geographic information systems (GIS), Global Positioning System (GPS) surveys and software development focused on applications in ecology, forestry, geography, geology and hydrology.
