University Consortium of Geographic Information Science at UIUC


  • UCGIS – goals, overview and contacts
  • Courses – look here for options to learn about GIScience and Geospatial Informatics
  • Places – centers, labs and other groups of interest
  • People – faculty, staff and students involved with UCGIS
  • Portfolio – the national UCGIS organization requires a campus-wide summary of activities every five years


The primary goal of the University Consortium of Geographic Information Science is to promote the interdisciplinary use and advancement of GIScience and GIS technologies. The UIUC UCGIS chapter includes representatives from colleges, schools, departments, centers, labs across the University. Interests among faculty and staff involved with Geographic Information Science vary. They include, but are not limited to interdisciplinary applications of GIS and spatial analysis/modeling techniques, development of new theories, methods and software in GIScience, policy and user issues, and geospatial data accessibility.
