Geospatial data are collected and analyzed to support scientific investigations and decision making in a wide variety of application domains (e.g., ecological and environmental sciences, transportation, public health, and business). Enormous computational resources are needed to store and manage geospatial data and derived information for such diverse purposes, and to conduct computationally intensive and collaborative geospatial analysis and problem solving. This type of analysis and problem solving represent a main area of geographic information science (GIScience), an interdisciplinary field involving geography and other social sciences, computer science, geodesy, and information sciences to study scientific and technological issues about the development and use of geographic information systems (GIS). The purpose of this project is to develop user-friendly and spatially intelligent capabilities for performing geospatial data analysis and problem solving based on cyberinfrastructure, and help non-technical users directly benefit from accessing cyberinfrastructure capabilities.
