The California State University GIS Specialty Center

The CSU GIS Specialty Center was established in 1992 to promote geographic information systems (GIS) and geographic techniques for spatial analysis within the California State University System. Member CSU campuses participate in a software site license with Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) for GIS software, ERDAS and ENVI for remote sensing and image processing software, and Trimble for GPS software. Benefits include access to training and complimentary registrations for the ESRI User and Education User Conferences. Perhaps most importantly, the GIS Specialty Center promotes intercampus dialogue on teaching, research and application issues within the field of Geographic Information Science.


The Director for the CSU GIS Specialty Center is Dr. Jerry Davis. Dr. Davis is Chair and Professor in the Department of Geography and Environment, at San Francisco State University. He specializes in geomorphology, soils, field methods, and geographic information systems. Dr. Davis was part of the team of CSU GIS faculty who negotiated and implemented the system-wide site license for GIS software with ESRI. In addition, Dr. Davis also negotiated a multi-campus license with Leica Geosystems for ERDAS IMAGINE software for remote sensing and image processing. His current research interests focus on karst and watershed geomorphic processes and the use of computers and GIS for field data collection and processing.
