The Advanced GIS Lab focuses on advanced spatial analysis and the research and development of advanced GIS solutions.
The lab stresses a transdisciplinary approach to knowledge, research, and problem solving that takes the core ideas, methods, and concepts from several disciplines and uses them to study a broad range of problems. The lab at Claremont Graduate University is aimed at stimulating student initiated GIS analysis, research, and solutions through corporate partnerships.
Currently, the Lab is working on issues that involve using GIS technologies to improve community health management, better manage transportation systems, and target humanitarian relief efforts. The lab is an officially designated Esri Development Center (EDC).
