Center of Excellence for Geospatial Information Science (CEGIS)
CEGIS research is focused on The National Map and 3DEP
The CEGIS vision is to conduct, lead, and influence the research and innovative solutions required by the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) and the emerging GeoSpatial and GeoSemantic Web. CEGIS is a virtual organization with Federal and academic affiliate scientists conducting research in support of The National Map and the Three-Dimensional Elevation Program (3DEP).
Current CEGIS Projects
Data Integration - Thomas Shoberg
Data Integration research at CEGIS primarily involves integrating data from The National Map with selected datasets needed to support visualization, analysis, modeling and decision making efforts of the USGS, other government agencies and the general public.
High-performance Computing (HPC) - Michael P. Finn
Perform investigations into understanding HPC applications development challenges in the scientific domain, particularly in GIScience, focusing on problems and issues related to multi-resolution raster data; using the pRasterBlaster software package as a case study.
Multiscale Representation - Larry Stanislawski
This project identifies relations between map scale and geomorphological
characteristics of cartographic features to automate generalization and
define ontology patterns for feature extraction.
