The Center for Interdisciplinary Geospatial Analysis (CIGA)

. . . enabling and promoting the application of geospatial technology to social and environmental problems through research, education and community service.

CIGA seeks interdisciplinary collaboration among campus and external researchers, students and other organizations in projects that involve geographic information and spatial analysis at local to global scales. To accomplish these goals, CIGA provides: computer, software and data resources; Geographic Information System (GIS) and remote sensing expertise and consulting services; educational courses; and community outreach. Courses in the Department of Geography and Global Studies provide a solid foundation in geospatial science. Students are given a unique opportunity to broaden and refine their education by working on real-world problems in CIGA research projects and service contracts.
