Spatial Data and Analysis Center

Spatial Data and Analysis Center

The Spatial Data and Analysis Center (SDAC) was established by the School of Professional Studies (new College of Behavioral and Social Sciences) in spring 2011 as a resource for the Coppin State University (CSU) faculty.

In fall of 2010, CSU deployed an Enterprise Geographical Information System (EGIS) system with the support of Dr. El-Haggan, the Vice President for the Information Technology Division (ITD), to enable CSU with this cutting-edge technology. EGIS was a major breakthrough for the campus as it enabled CSU with a new analytical dimension by offering its robust geospatial capabilities.

CSU's EGIS infrastructure is currently being used to develop an online geospatial data warehouse and to build many mission-centric applications for the CSU community.
