Spatial Information Systems Lab

The Spatial Information Systems Lab conducts research and develops technologies and infrastructure that enable users to access, integrate and manage spatial information. Application domains range from hydrology and environmental sciences, to neuroscience. Working in collaboration with other SDSC R&D Labs and UCSD programs  we support spatial information processing and Web mapping in a variety of projects. Our main research focuses on cyberinfrastructure for managing observational data, distributed information systems, web services and XML schemas for standards-based data interchange, spatial data integration and GIS, online data discovery and visualization.
