The CSU GEOSPATIAL REVIEW

The number of disciplines and CSU campus departments using GIS and related methods is long, including: Anthropology, Biology, Business, Marketing, MIS Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Economics, Engineering, Environmental Studies, Forestry, Geography, Geology, History, Journalism, Landscape Architecture, Library Science, Natural Resource Planning, Oceanography, Physics, Political Science, Public Health, Recreation & Parks, Sociology, Social Science, Statistics, Urban Planning, and Wildlife.

We're often trying to solve the same problems, which might be staffing a lab, setting up internet map access, or integrating GPS technology into a research program. The goal of the CSU Geospatial Review is to provide a means to share ideas or discover future research collaborators on other campuses. With the wealth of disciplines contributing to the discussion, there’s tremendous potential for cross-fertilization, and a great spatially-aware future for the CSU.

CSU Geospatial Review is published yearly and mailed out in early May. Please submit interesting stories about appropriate projects to the GIS Specialty Center no later than December 15. You may email or provide a CD with the story content (about 500 words) and high resolution images. Submitted stories will be reviewed by the Editorial Board. Please send your submission to:
