The Center for Spatial Data Science (CSDS) addresses research questions where location represents an important dimension of the research problem, with applications in economic geography, environmental economics, sociology, criminology, public health, and other social sciences.
CSDS also develops new methods and open-source software tools for spatial econometric modeling, clustering, exploratory analysis, geovisual analytics, and CyberGIS (Geographic Information Systems).
