GeoVISTA Mission and Overview

As diverse scientific and societal issues generate growing volumes of geospatial data, demand for technologies to facilitate effective use of these data also grows. Critical issues include: assessing terrorist threats, understanding health-environment interactions, planning for dramatic changes in regional demographics, and managing environmental risk. The GeoVISTA Center is working to address the array of research challenges and opportunities posed in developing useful and usable technologies to take advantage of a wealth of geospatial data.
