Geospatial research at Yale takes many forms and encompasses a variety of disciplines. Using geographic information systems (GIS) and other geospatial approaches, researchers analyze and communicate complex ideas through the creation of maps and models.

This media wall exhibit at the Center for Science & Social Science Information highlights current geospatial projects at Yale University, including the work of scholars from the Faculty of Arts & Sciences, the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, the School of Architecture, the Yale Center for Earth Observation, and the Max Planck-Yale Center for Biodiversity Movement and Global Change. The exhibit also explores the development of GIS and geospatial technologies and features digitized maps from the collections of the Yale University Library and the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library
