The NCGIA was founded in 1988 as a National Science Foundation center for research in geographic information and its related technologies. The Center is based at three sites in the United States: here at Buffalo (NCGIA-Buffalo), at the University of California at Santa Barbara (NCGIA-UCSB), and at the University of Maine (NCGIA-Maine).
Andre Skupin: In the figure above, keywords extracted from geography conference abstracts are spatialized in a two-dimensional visualization using a self-organizing map approach. The keywords are clustered into categories according to similarities between them. Each category is labeled by a representative root word (a form of word after all affixes are removed).
David Mark: The figure demonstrates the frequency of words used in the title of PhD dissertations completed during 1973-2008 in geography.Hide
The Buffalo site of the NCGIA (NCGIA-Buffalo) manages the Buffalo portion of the national center, supports a range of research grants and programs, and coordinates GIScience activities on campus. NCGIA-Buffalo is an organized research unit of the University at Buffalo, facilitating an active and interdisciplinary research community. More about us.
