pressing interdisciplinary research . . .
. . . innovative spatial solutions
The Center for Integrated Spatial Research (CISR), formerly the GIS/ISC Laboratory, is the central facility for spatially-focused research and training at the University of California, Santa Cruz. CISR is focused on integrating state-of-of-the-art spatial technology and methods (geographic information systems, global positioning systems, remote sensing, spatial modeling/statistics) with pressing interdisciplinary research and fostering cross-domain cooperation in the application of these tools. In order to advance this purpose, CISR is dedicated to promoting a diversity of research by increasing campus and community literacy in spatial methods and engaging in innovations in spatial science.
- advanced spatial modeling
- spatial tool development
- geospatial web services
- geospatial training
- and more...
At the intersection of social, natural, and information sciences, CISR is composed of a diverse team of faculty, staff, and students that conduct their research under the collaborative focus of the center. . .
From the offices of the Department of Environmental Studies, CISR manages both a research and teaching facility specializing in state-of-the-art spatial technology, software applications, and data. . .
To support research integrating spatial concepts, CISR is actively engaged in advanced spatial modeling and statistics; spatial tool development; field mapping technology and methods; cartographic visualization. . .
As the central place for spatial research at UCSC, CISR serves as the primary resource for spatially related events, information and resources for the university and the surrounding community. . .
