The center is dedicated to collaborate with agencies and industry to conduct leading spatiotemporal innovations to improve human intelligence, develop new software tools, and build innovative solutions to address 21st century challenges, such as natural hazards, environment polution, emergency response. 

Center Mission and Rationale

The spatiotemporal innovation center is projected to receive over $2M/year research funding in collaboration with agencies and industry. Through a 10-15 year investigation, the center is targeted to build the national and international spatiotemporal infrastructure to advance a) human intelligence through spatiotemporal thinking, b) computer software and tools through spatiotemporal computing, and c) human capability of responding to deep scientific questions and grand engineering challenges through spatiotemporal applications.
