The power and importance of spatial thinking and digital geography is what the USC Spatial Sciences Institute is all about.
As front-line researchers and educators, we are dedicated to deploying the power of: people, place, and time; information as maps; environmental sustainability and human well-being; and actionable research and informed decision-making.
We collaborate with a cross-cutting array of researchers, businesses, non-profits, NGOs, and other entities from a wide range of disciplines and industries to analyze, model, and visualize location-based data. Through our innovative undergraduate programs – minors in GIS and Sustainability Science, Human Security and Geospatial Intelligence, and Spatial Studies and majors in GeoDesign and Global GeoDesign – masters programs in Geographic Information Science and Technology, Spatial Data Science, and Spatial Economics and Data Analysis, and doctoral programs in Spatial Analytics and Population, Health & Place, we develop the next generation of spatial thinkers, empowering them with capabilities to help address global challenges. Members of our internationally-recognized faculty contribute to the rapidly-evolving body of geospatial knowledge
