The GIScience Center is responsible for teaching and research in geographic information science within the Department of Geography.
Three of the thirteen groups of our department make up the GIScience Center: Geographic Information Visualization & Analysis (GIVA), Geocomputation (Geocomp) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

ThinkSpatial brownbag talk at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB)
André Bruggmann was invited to give a ThinkSpatial brownbag talk at the Center for Spatial Studies of the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). In his talk titled „How Does GIScience Support Spatio-Temporal and Thematic Information Exploration in the Humanities“ he presented latest findings of his PhD project on how spatio-temporal and thematic information and interconnections implicitly stored in large online text archives in the humanities can be made explicit, and how this might help information seekers in the humanities learn and gain new insight into space, time, and theme. Find a detailed description of his talk here.
