The Geospatial Core Facility (GCF) serves as an integrated hub for all things geo-spatial on campus and beyond, and actively supports Montana State University's long-standing commitment to integrating discovery, learning, and community engagement.
The Geospatial Core Facility is a team of geo-spatial professionals that span the human and environmental components of geo-spatial analysis.
The GCF has discipline specific expertise and leverages state of the science analysis, technology, and computing.
The Geospatial Core Facility is committed to four interrelated and complementary components.
- Expanding and facilitating interdisciplinary research through geo-spatial data collection, analysis, and visualization.
- Supporting external funding along the continuum of the grant process from proposal conceptualization to data collection, analysis, geo-visualization, & dissemination.
- Developing new educational opportunities focused on geo-spatial technologies and analysis for students at MSU and MUS campuses, and through outreach across Montana and beyond.
- Growing mutually beneficial partnerships that support informed public policy and governance and help financially sustain the longer-term viability of the GCF.
The GCF is designed to advance geo-spatial research while also supporting MSU’s Grand Challenge Research Goals. We welcome the opportunity to bolster the university’s status as a regional and national leader in its Grand Challenge areas.
