SPATIAL SCIENCES INSTITUTE: THE SCIENCE OF “WHERE”

We see the world differently: we view it through a spatial lens. With the power of spatial thinking, we as faculty, researchers, and students connect place and space to help address global challenges. As the hub of spatial thinking and analysis at USC, we partner with researchers, businesses, non-profits, NGOs, and other entities to analyze, model, and visualize location-based data. blankThrough our innovative General Education courses, Spatial Studies minor, Human Security and Geospatial Intelligence minor, B.S. in GeoDesign, Geographic Information Science and Technology Graduate Programs, M.S. in Spatial Informatics, and Ph.D. in Population, Health and Place, we develop the next generation of spatial thinkers, empowering them with capabilities to solve real-world issues. Our internationally-recognized faculty contribute to the rapidly-evolving body of geospatial knowledge. Connect, compute, and collaborate with us. Learn More
