The Texas A&M GeoServices started as a PhD project at the University of Southern California.
With years of enhancements and a job offer at a top-notch research institution that could not be turned down,
TAMU GeoServices is now located in the center of America within the Texas A&M University Department of Geography
While the research components upon which Texas A&M University Geoservices is
based represent the output of
numerous ongoing research projects over the course of several years, the
Texas A&M University Geoservices site which exposes their functionality was initially
created in the summer of 2007.
The first iteration was created in response to a need for a web-based
interactive geocode correction tool. As usage increased,
requests for access to the latest research tools also increased,
resulting in the creation of the
service-oriented site you see now. The present version of Texas A&M University Geoservices
is meant to function as an interface to the latest research advances being made
by researchers in the Texas A&M University Department of Geography.
Location: College Station, Texas
The Texas A&M University Department of Geography is located on the seventh and eighth floor of
Eller O&M Building on the main
Texas A&M University Campus in College Station, Texas. The open and dynamic environment of the GIS Lab
combines the best ideas from researchers in the fields of
Geography, Computer Science, and Health, resulting in a cross
