Geographic Information Science Center
Research Unit Profile
The campus-wide Geographic Information Science (GISc) Center embodies a three-pronged mission that encompasses research, instruction/education, and outreach. Led by the Department of Geography, the Center includes participants across the UT campus including College of Liberal Arts, College of Natural Sciences, School of Architecture, School of Library Science, Center for Space Research, and the Environmental Science Institute. The Center coordinates UT's existing but previously disjointed strengths in Geographic Information Science and related fields while simultaneously providing infrastructure and leadership in fully integrating digital spatial technologies within the campus as well as with the wider community throughout the state.
