This position will have its tenure home in Geographical Sciences and is expected to start on or about August 2017.
Geospatial Information Science (GI Science) is focused on the development of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) that can support the representation and exploration of a diverse array of “spaces”. One of our primary foci is in building GIS across this wide array of systems, and in doing so from scratch. Learn more about or work to build next-generation GIS.
