Secondary Cities, Humanitarian Information Unit, US Department of State

Secondary Cities is a field-based initiative of the Office of the Geographer to map for Resiliency, Human Security, and Emergency Preparedness. The program builds partnerships to create geospatial capacity, enhance understanding through data and mapping, and enable science-based decision making.


DEVELOP, part of NASA’s Applied Sciences Program, addresses environmental and public policy issues through interdisciplinary research projects that apply the lens of NASA Earth observations to community concerns around the globe. Bridging the gap between NASA Earth Science and society, DEVELOP builds capacity in both participants and partner organizations to better prepare them to address the challenges that face our society and future generations.

Geospatial Centroid at Colorado State University

The Geospatial Centroid at CSU is dedicated to facilitating campus-wide communication about events, research, and education in geospatial sciences. The Centroid is a resource and research center at Colorado State University established to provide students, faculty, and the Colorado community with information about GIS at CSU and how these activities link to broader statewide, regional and global initiatives.

The Living Atlas of East Africa Flora (LEAF)

The Living atlas of East African Flora (LEAF) is on an open access on-line database that integrates new plant information (e.g., species occurrences, plot data, and local ecological knowledge) with legacy data. Integrated datasets are summarized using maps of diversity, sampling effort, endemism, and species distribution to guide conservation actions and outcomes.

Center for Collaborative Conservation

The Center for Collaborative Conservation (CCC) based out of Colorado State University, is a place where stakeholders can come together to collaboratively discuss, define, study and implement conservation practices to sustain both the earth’s ecosystems and the people who depend upon them. The CCC provided funding and support for the construction of this website.
