GIS can be leveraged for relevant, data-driven problem solving – the ULCGIS strives to empower the wider Louisville community through maps and spatial analysis.
The Center for GIS at the University of Louisville has a long history of community engagement, with partners ranging from organized groups, agencies, and institutions, to individuals. Research in collaboration with the Center for GIS has propelled projects in history, policy, and equity-building throughout Louisville. Some of our recent partner organizations include:
- Jefferson County Public Schools
- Family and Children’s Place
- National Safe Place Network
- Louisville Nature Center
- American Chestnut Foundation – Kentucky Chapter
- Kentuckiana Regional Planning & Development Agency (KIPDA)
- Fund for the Arts
- Louisville Metro Office for Globalization
- Kentucky Refugee Ministries
Our goal is to enhance the quality of inquiry, study, and outcomes of local research projects with specific efforts to support our community’s most marginalized people. And we invite you to contact us with questions of any kind that can contribute to strengthening our Louisville community.
