New exhibit at the CSSSI - “Navigating the World: Geospatial Approaches at Yale”

Geospatial exhibit at the CSSSI
November 28, 2018

Geospatial research at Yale takes many forms and encompasses a variety of disciplines. With geographic information systems (GIS) and other geospatial approaches, researchers analyze and communicate complex ideas through the creation of maps and models. At Yale, researchers consult historical maps on vellum, gather images from drones and satellites, visualize U.S. public opinion on climate change, monitor global diversity, and more. 

Our new media wall exhibit at the CSSSI highlights current geospatial projects at Yale University, including the work of scholars from the Faculty of Arts & Sciences, the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, the School of Architecture, the Yale Center for Earth Observation, and the Max Planck-Yale Center for Biodiversity Movement and Global Change. The exhibit also explores the development of GIS and geospatial technologies and features digitized maps fromt the collections of the Yale University Library and the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library. 

“Navigating the World: Geospatial Approaches at Yale” will be on display on the CSSSI 24-Hour Space media wall from November 2018 to April 2019. To view past CSSSI media wall exhibits, visit
