THE INSTITUTE FOR SPATIAL ANALYSIS, MODELING, AND MONITORING

The Instititue for Spatial Analysis, Mapping, and Modeling (ISAMM) is committed to the advancement and integration of geospatial science across multiple academic disciplines. In working with numerous departments at Humboldt State University (HSU), the Institute fosters a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to geospatial research, and provides real-world solutions to pressing environmental issues.


Geospatial science is of increasing importance across a wide variety of industries, providing innovative methods to gather, analyze, and distribute spatial information. ISAMM utilizes cutting-edge technologies, and leverages the knowledgebase of HSU's geospatial faculty to enhance its research capacity across numerous academic disciplines. As the center for geospatial research at HSU, ISAMM provides students with real-world geospatial training.
