GAC services include: Project design, Identification of system and data needs, Data acquisition and analysis, Budget estimates, Workshops, Teaching/Research Support & Cartography. Our workshops and faculty consultations aim to expand the use of spatial analysis across all five of UMD's colleges and many different programs.

The new BulldogMobile App includes a section displaying indoor floor maps of buildings on campus. If you spot an inaccuracy, the Geospatial Analysis Center would appreciate you notifying us via this form so the error can be corrected.

Projects are obtained through competitive and non-competitive means and are funded through sponsored projects, external sales, and the GIS Student Support Fund, a University Foundation fund.
