Congratulations to Geography Professor's Francis Harvey and Steve Manson who recently received, along with a group of other collaborators across campus, a 2.5 million I3 (Infrastructure Investment Initiative) award for the U-Spatial Initiative.
U-Spatial coordinates equipment and services for the University research community working with spatial information, the key to spatiotemporal studies of people, places, and process. U-Spatial brings together existing resources and services and strengthens research activities in four infrastructure cores: technical assistance, training, and resource coordination; analysis of aerial and satellite imagery of the earth; data archiving and development of shared computing; and spatiotemporal modeling, geodesign, and mapping
