Data and Technology Meet Current and Future Demands
The Center for Geographic Information Systems (CGIS) is an interdisciplinary research center within Georgia Tech’s College of Design and the School of City and Regional Planning. We use current and leading technologies in the development and application of geospatial technologies.
We look at data (facts and figures) and its relationship to a specific geographic location, thus the term “geospatial.” We take that geospatial information and analyze it and create visualization tools to help our partners make informed decisions across a variety of topics such as infrastructure issues, environmental processes, and computer and technological projects.
We also aim to ensure that our projects help our partners and clients find sustainable, or lasting, solutions.
Georgia Tech, University of California San Diego, Johns Hopkins, and North Carolina State University have teamed up to launch the Physical Activity Research Center (PARC), a new type of collaboration that aims to improve the health of our nation’s youth through physical activity.
As a finalist for the award, TechSAge was highlighted for its innovations in making environments more accessible to aging populations, and in creating a more user-friendly world—no matter what our abilities or age.
