The impact of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) on research at UCLA cannot be overstated. Disciplines across the campus have embraced the technology to build knowledge within their primary fields and as part of inter-disciplinary teams exploring broad research themes and grand challenges. The IDRE GIS, Visualization and Modeling program emphasizes the ‘spatial turn’ that is opening up new opportunities for discovery and innovation.
