Center for Environmental Applications in Remote Sensing (CEARS)- Our mission is to provide interdisciplinary leadership in remote sensing through formal instruction, outreach, cooperative research, and consulting. CEARS contributes to applications of the science and technology necessary to better understand effects of both natural and human-induced variability and change within the Earth system.
Center for Geospatial Information Technology (CGIT)- As a truly interdisciplinary university-wide center at Virginia Tech (VT), CGIT's mission is to generate visibility, procure research funding, and provide technical expertise in Geographic Information Systems, Global Positioning Systems, and Computer-Aided Design. Our staff, researchers, and affiliated faculty and researchers seek to integrate spatial awareness in intelligent data collection methods, in-field analysis, modeling and simulation, decision support, visualization, and several other techniques in a wide variety of domains.
Conservation Management Institute (CMI) - The Conservation Management Institute provides assistance to natural resource agencies interested in vegetation and wetland mapping, GIS building and applications, as well as field support and other information gathering activities.
OGIS- OGIS is an affiliation of teaching and research faculty from 5 colleges, 15 departments and the Virginia Tech Libraries who share an interest and expertise in Geospatial Information Technologies (GIT).
Listservs, mailing lists, and blogs
Virginia Tech Office of Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing (VT-OGIS) – Have you considered joining the VT-OGIS Listserv? This is your opportunity to network with a GIS discussion group. The Virginia Tech Office of GIS and Remote Sensing sponsors a listserv for the University community to facilitate discussion on geographic information systems, remote sensing, and the technologies that support these areas of research.
GISVirginia - All things geospatial in the Commonwealth. The GISVirginia blog includes useful hypertext links or pointers to information created and maintained by other public and private organizations and individuals' blogs. This is a moderated blog, and we will only post comments from bloggers that relate to topics on GISVirginia.
