Missouri S&T is joining with other leading research institutions from Missouri and Illinois to form a geospatial research collaborative, the Taylor Geospatial Institute (TGI). The institute is designed to affect foundational research, food systems, health care, national security and economic development.

“The Taylor Geospatial Institute will harness Missouri S&T’s expertise in unmanned aerial vehicles and drones, robotics, geophysics, and remote sensing,” says Dr. David Borrok, associate dean for research in S&T’s College of Engineering and Computing and a TGI research council member. “We will work as equal partners with the other members of the institute to develop a geospatial corridor in the Midwest that is one of the best in the U.S.”
