The Geographic Information Science Center mission is to provide a foundation for excellence in teaching, research, and public service in GISci with an emphasis on educating students to become leaders in the geospatial sciences. The objectives of the Center are threefold: 1) to coordinate high caliber teaching, scholarship, and outreach through application of GISci tools, 2) to provide facilities in which users can access the state-of-the-art equipment and software to support their work, and 3) to secure external grants to fund its activities and improve its infrastructure.
