Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit, California CESU: The Center of Excellence for Geospatial Information Science (CEGIS) of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is offering a cooperative agreement opportunity to Universities that have the ability to conduct research in geographic information science applications in the Californian Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (CESU). CEGIS primarily conducts research and develops solutions in support of The National Map and the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI), which are the spatial infrastructure that underpins USGS science in biology, water resources, geology, and geography. Current CEGIS research projects include (but are not limited to) design of an electronic topographic map, automated data integration and generalization, creating an ontology for The National Map, user-centered design for Web map services, and representation of geospatial data, phenomena, and processes as multi-resolution raster data, For a successful cooperative agreement, the partner University must have complementary research interests and be able to address these and other potential research topics.CEGIS specifically is seeking technical assistance from Universities for a broad range of research and development efforts related to The National Map and the National Spatial Data Infrastructure, both of which support land management, environmental and research agencies as well as USGS science. Multiple scale support for The National Map is a critical component of our research efforts including the ability to generalize from a high resolution to any user-specified lower resolution. Generation of contours, drainage networks, and geomorphic features from high resolution digital elevation data and conflating and integrating those features with existing geospatial datasets is critical for ecosystem research using data and themes from The National Map. Research and technical assistance for cartographic design, display, and visualization of geospatial data at multiple scales also is critical to support The National Map as a spatial data infrastructure for USGS investigations in biological, physical, social and cultural sciences for resource issues and interdisciplinary problem-solving. CEGIS is trying to establish working collaborations among Federal agencies and Universities and other partner institutions to accomplish mutual research objectives. In addition cooperative projects should include and foster student training opportunities in geospatial information science, cartography, and environmental studies.
