Geospatial Innovation Facility: New name, new logo, new web site. . .

September 11, 2008

There have been many exciting changes for at CNR's Geospatial Innovation Facility (GIF) -- formerly the Geospatial Imaging & Informatics Facility (GIIF).

The facility has a new and improved website,, with simplified navigation and a useful search tool, making it easier for users to locate geospatial tools and techniques, workshops and training opportunities, and facility locations and events.

Along with the new visual identity, the GIF is offering a variety of fresh additions to its already well known support and services. New workshops this year will include advanced geospatial topics in Land Cover Change Analysis, Species Distribution Modeling, and Photo-point GPS Monitoring.

Keep an eye on the website for the latest workshop schedules. GIF staff, Kevin and Jeremy, will also continue to provide support geospatial queries with office hours available throughout the week. This is a great opportunity to get advice on developing a project or to get help with software. The staff share a wide range of experience and are happy to assist. For more complex geospatial research, staff is always interested in collaboration. Contact them to learn what innovative geospatial components the GIF can offer to research projects and grant opportunities.
