What is RUGIS?

RUGIS is the Rutgers “chapter” of the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS).

Rutgers is a member of the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS), a non-profit organization that creates and supports communities of practice for GIScience research, education, and policy endeavors in higher education and with allied institutions. RUGIS meets once a semester to discuss matters relating to UCGIS initiatives, and gives people from different units in the university an opportunity to share and discuss GIS related information and experiences.

The UCGIS delegates from Rutgers are:

  • Åsa Rennermalm, Department of Geography
  • David Tulloch, Department of Landscape Architecture

When is the next RUGIS meeting?

RUGIS meets once in the fall semester and once in the spring semester. Specific date, time, and location will be announced on the RUGIS mailing list and posted to the events page. All are welcome to attend.
