The Experience

Geospatial Information Systems and Science at Johns Hopkins University

Johns Hopkins University Geospatial Information Systems and Science encompass a wide array of practices across a myriad of disciplines. Students are afforded the opportunity to immerse in geospatial analysis and visualization techniques offered in Archeology, Geography and Environmental Engineering, Hydrology, Remote Sensing, and numerous courses specific to the practice of geospatial modeling and spatial statistics. As a research institution, Johns Hopkins engages in numerous multidisciplinary projects that utilize geospatial techniques to explore the inter-relationships of spatial features within a defined study area. The various GIS activities are cataloged as multidisciplinary studiesresearch activities; and teaching.

Geospatial Information Systems is surging at Johns Hopkins University. As more and more researchers embrace the tools and techniques of spatial data modeling, analysis, and visualization, the uses of GIS expand across the university as new disciplines enter into this exciting research arena.

  • Multidisciplinary Studies
    Multidisciplinary studies involve research within and across disciplines to apply methodologies and tools from addressing larger research agenda items.
  • Research Groups and Resources
    Current research projects at Johns Hopkins. Research groups at Johns Hopkins University engage in geospatial studies in schools across the university including The Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, The Whiting School of Engineering, The Bloomberg School of Public Health, and The Applied Physics Laboratory.
  • Teaching
    Teaching is a core element of the GIS at Johns Hopkins University. The offerings of GIS courses include those geared to professional studies, environmental engineering, hydrology, and public health.
