collaborative enterprise that engages the University’s scientists, geologists,
information specialists and others. Members of the Task Force possess expertise in geographic
software, information technology, surveying, and global positioning systems.

the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, and the Schools of
Engineering, Information Sciences, Law, and Medicine. Research, education, and
training are the foundation of this enterprise. The Task Force is a service of the University Center for Social and Urban Research (UCSUR).
