This collection contains the dissertations of the Geospatial Sciences Center of Excellence (GSCE). The Geospatial Science and Engineering Ph.D. is a novel interdisciplinary program that integrates advanced coursework in the sciences and engineering with cutting-edge research to advance the emerging field of Geographic Information Sciences (GISc). The focus of GISc is on understanding geospatial data and transforming the data into relevant information through its acquisition, processing, characterization, analysis, and modeling.
Due to copyright restrictions, the collection contains both open access and university access theses and dissertations. University access items are only available to SDSU users, and on-campus visitors. Non-SDSU users wishing to access restricted materials may request items through their institution’s interlibrary loan services.
