The University of Missouri–St. Louis continues to build its connections with the rapidly developing geospatial ecosystem that’s been sprouting up throughout St. Louis alongside construction of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s new west campus northwest of downtown.

That’s required adding staff to UMSL’s Geospatial Collaborative, which launched in 2020 to take advantage of the region’s growing expertise and facilitate collaboration with university researchers.
