Fall 2019 Spatial Sciences Research Cluster announcement

The UC Davis DataLab has selected geospatial research as one of the focus areas for a Research Cluster for the 2019-2020 academic year. We see this research cluster as an extension of the #maptimeDavis community already active on the UC Davis campus and hope that the cluster will actively support and engage in the #maptimeDavis workshops. 

What is a Research Cluster? A Research Cluster is an interdisciplinary group of researchers (undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, post docs, staff, etc.) that meet to learn and apply concepts and methods with an aim towards furthering their research capabilities. 

What is the focus within the broad topic of geospatial?  We have decided to focus on the concept of change using geospatial tools and data.

How to participate: We will meet biweekly starting Oct. 1 on Tuesdays 10:00-12:00 in the DataLab Classroom (360 Shields Library).

Please send questions to Michele Tobias mmtobias@ucdavis.edu
