The Geographic Information System (GIS) research group at UCSC works on contemporary geospatial technologies with the aim of enhancing existing GIS solutions and developing new geospatial solutions. The main emphasis of the research group is on Location Based Services (LBS) and on the use of remotely sensed data to develop algorithms and techniques to identify different types of land parcels and their characteristic to improve resource management. The group also research on using satellite data to improve the accuracy of existing vector data.
