Modeling, Measurement, Visualization and Computation: techniques for the collection, analysis, manipulation, interpretation and display of geospatial data, using tools such as GIS, Remote Sensing, GPS, and Spatial Statistics. A variety of software is utilized such as ARCGIS, R, ERDAS Imagine, ENVI, Python, Java, C++, Matlab, SQL, SPSS, Google Earth Engine, NOAA’s Weather and Climate Toolkit and more. Many courses are taught within our own geospatial analysis labs or flipped classroom environment space.

Our sub-focus areas are as follows:

  • GIS – Geographic Information Systems
  • Spatial statistics
  • Remote Sensing
  • GIS Programming & Development
  • Network Analysis
  • Ecological Modeling
  • Atmospheric data analysis
  • Digital Mapping
  • Landscape Ecology
  • Spatial econometrics
  • Geostatistics
  • Land Change Science

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
