Geospatial Data Analysis Building Blocks (GABBs)

Project member? Login to members area.


This NSF-funded project aims to create a powerful Web-based system that will allow researchers worldwide to manage, curate, share, analyze and visualize geospatial data for purposes ranging from predicting damaging floods to projecting climate change effects on the poor. The project will build geospatial data hosting, processing and sharing capabilities into the HUBzero platform for scientific collaboration. This should open the way for easy development of a variety of Web-enabled tools for probing and presenting geospatial data in ways that can, among other things, help policymakers address pressing issues in the U.S. and around the globe.
