After almost two years of being housed in temporary facilities, The Georgia Tech Center for Geographic Information Systems (CGIS) has moved into a newly remodeled space on the second floor of 760 Spring Street. The move was completed just before the 2015-16 academic year, and expands the Center’s space to allow for more personnel and continued innovative research. With this move, the CGIS becomes part of the lively urban milieu of Tech Square with its community of restaurants, academic facilities, business headquarters, recreational spaces, and other urban amenities. Most importantly, this location is close to public transit and visitor parking. 

The CGIS’s new space can accommodate 10 full-time staff and 30 student researchers. Additionally, the Tech Square facilities are home to the CGIS subsidiary, the Imagine Lab. 

CGIS shares a lobby and utility space with the Center for Quality Growth and Regional Development (CQGRD), emphasizing the synergies and collaboration between the two. There is also a brand new classroom on the floor, and a conference room complete with state of the art technology.
