Geospatial Fellows Webinar Series

The Geospatial Software Institute (GSI) Conceptualization Project announced the support of 16 fellowships to enable and support diverse researchers and educators to harness geospatial software and data at scale, in reproducible and transparent ways; and will contribute to the nation’s workforce capability and capacity to utilize geospatial big data and software for knowledge discovery.

To showcase the findings and outcomes of the projects of the Geospatial Fellows for advancing COVID-19 research and education, the GSI Conceptualization Project will hold a monthly webinar. These webinars will be scheduled for the fourth Monday of every Month between 4-5 pm Central Time.

Check out past and upcoming webinars here.

The 16 Geospatial Fellows come from varied professional, cultural, and institutional backgrounds, representing many disciplinary areas, including public health, food justice, hazard prediction and response, housing and neighborhood change, and community-based mapping. The fellowship projects represent frontiers of emerging geospatial data science, including for example deep learning, geovisualization, advanced approaches to gathering and analyzing geospatial data, and GeoAI.
