The University of Massachusetts – Amherst invites applications for a Lecturer in Geographic Information Science and Technology at the Mt. Ida Campus. We seek a geographer with expertise in one or more of the following areas: CyberGIS, geovisualization, spatial database design and implementation, geocomputation for processing spatial big data, and/or spatial modeling and analysis. Successful candidates will be able to teach courses in WebGIS, mobile GIS, GIS Programming, Spatial Database Design and Management, and other courses in their specialty.
The NSF I/UCRC Spatiotemporal Innovation Center (STC)’s Industry Advisory Board (IAB) will hold its next meeting at Harvard CGA on June 19th – 20th 2019. At this meeting researchers will report on-going projects’ status, and present new proposals. Board members will give comments, and vote on which project(s) their membership fund will support for the next year. Perspective members are welcome to attend too, though they will need to sign a NDA, and can’t participate in voting. Click here for more information.

Soil moisture is an important factor for accurate prediction of agricultural productivity and rainfall runoff with hydrological models. Remote sensing satellites such as Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) offer synoptic views of soil moisture distribution at a regional-to-global scale. To use the soil moisture product from these satellites, however, requires a downscaling of the data from a usually large instantaneous field of view (i.e. 36 km) to the watershed analysis scales ranging...
