About Us

The Center for Geographic Information Science (CGISc) at the University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG) was established in the Summer of 2006. CGISc is an educational research entity that relies on theories, concepts, and applications to solve, analyze, and model the geographic aspects of human and natural phenomena. CGISc welcomes collaboration and partnerships with government agencies, non-profit organizations and private corporations. The contributions of both graduate and undergraduate students are central to the center’s activities.

Research activities are supported by faculty, staff, students, and partners from various specialized fields such as geographic information systems, remote sensing and image processing, cartography, engineering, and mathematics. The Center is well equipped with computers, specialized hardware, and a full range of geospatial software.

CGISc has worked on a wide range of projects of various size and scope with numerous partners. Check out our Projects page for a detailed list of past and ongoing projects.
