Geo*: GIS on Massive Datasets

The Geo* project deals with systems and algorithms for massive data computing, focusing on geometric computing problems that are fundamental to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other spatial data processing.

Geo* is a collaboration among researchers in systems, algorithms, and environmental sciences. Our ``vertically integrated'' team develops fundamental GIS algorithms for data-intensive problems, systems and software infrastructures for storing and transmitting massive data sets, and application software for the environmental sciences.
