Baylor's Center for Spatial Research Brings Versatile Geographic Display and Analysis Dimension to the BRIC
Baylor's Center for Spatial Research Brings Versatile Geographic Display and Analysis Dimension to the BRIC

When initially developed in the 1960s, the computerized Geographic Information System (GIS) made it possible to view, manipulate and analyze large amounts of geospatial data.

Using today's advanced GIS systems, researchers in Baylor's Center for Spatial Research (CSR) contribute multiple levels of research and development expertise -- spatial analysis, simulation model development, hardware development and system integration for spatially-related technologies, for example -- to projects ranging from water quality and wastewater treatment studies, land utilization planning, airborne and satellite remote sensing, wildland fire prevention and management, and atmospheric research.

In addition to supporting Baylor faculty in a wide range of research disciplines and projects, the CSR's extramural collaborations include project support for local municipalities and special resource districts, as well as such governmental agencies as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service and the Army Corps of Engineers.
