The Center for Geospatial Intelligence (CGEOINT) at George Mason University focuses on research that relates to geospatial and spatiotemporal information extraction, analysis, and visualization.





The CGEOINT team comprises faculty, research associates, and graduate research assistants.




CGEOINT researchers publish in a variety related to image analysis, geospatial and spatiotemporal modeling and analysis.




Among the various educational offerings of the Department of Geography and Geoinformation Science the Center is more closely related to the Graduate Certificate in Geospatila Intelligence, the MS program in Geoinformatics and Geospatial Intellignce, and of course the PhD program.
