Current Research

ResearchThe Center for Geospatial Research conducts scientific investigations incorporating geospatial technologies, including remote sensing, satellite-based positioning and geographic information systems.

In addition to the research developed by the Center, we have traditionally provided the infrastructure and logistics in support of several Master’s thesis and Ph.D. dissertations, housing students from multiple departments at the University of Georgia, as well as exchange students from other institutions in the United States and abroad.
