The Spatial Information Systems Lab conducts research and develops technologies and infrastructure that enable users to access, integrate and manage spatial information. Application domains range from hydrology and environmental sciences, to neuroscience. Working in collaboration with other SDSC R&D Labs and UCSD programs (such as NCMIR, SIO, USP), we support spatial information processing and Web mapping in a variety of projects. Our main research foci are cyberinfrastructure for managing observational data, web services and XML schemas for standards-based data interchange, spatial data integration, and online mapping.
The lab is lead by Ilya Zaslavsky.
