The location of the CGIS inside the Beltway of the Washington D.C. metropolitan area affords us many connections to local agencies and companies that develop and apply geospatial technologies. We have a strong interest in building new connections, particularly in service of applied research and education in Maryland and the local area. We also have strong international links with commercial and educational partners in Europe and Asia.
The most straightforward way to partner with the CGIS is to get in touch or pay us a visit. We can demonstrate some of the research and development projects that we are engaged with and explore opportunities to collaborate. Our students are doing some really wonderful work and they are always enthusiastic to share their excitement.
We also have a number of mechanisms by which formal partnerships with the Center can be organized, through teaming plans, sponsorship of projects, or longer-term collaboration agreements.
