UC Santa Cruz Center for Integrated Spatial Research (CISR)

The Center for Integrated Spatial Research (CISR), formerly the GIS/ISC Laboratory, is the central facility for spatially-focused research and training at the University of California, Santa Cruz. CISR is focused on integrating state-of-of-the-art spatial technology and methods (geographic information systems, global positioning systems, remote sensing, spatial modeling/statistics) with pressing interdisciplinary research and fostering cross-domain cooperation in the application of these tools. In order to advance this purpose, CISR is dedicated to promoting a diversity of research by increasing campus and community literacy in spatial methods and engaging in innovations in spatial science:

  • Advanced spatial modeling
  • Spatial tool development
  • Geospatial web services
  • Geovisualization
  • Geospatial training
  • and more...

The CISR website lists academic courses, training resources including podcasts and a self-paced documentation library, and workshops.
