A University of Iowa researcher has been named a fellow to the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science.

Marc Armstrong, professor and collegiate fellow in the Department of Geographical and Sustainability Sciences and associate dean for research and infrastructure in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, will be honored as a UCGIS fellow at the non-profit scientific and educational organization’s June 2019 Symposium in Washington, D.C.

The UCGIS noted Armstrong’s research and his service to the organization, including his membership on the UCGIS Board of Directors and his ongoing and steady support for UCGIS through participation in its events and activities throughout its history.

Armstrong’s primary research interests are in the theory and application of geographic information systems, computer systems that analyze and display geographically referenced information, spatial data analysis, and cartography. 

The UCGIS Fellows Program was created in 2010 to celebrate achievements of individuals in a variety of spatial disciplines and communities of practice that use spatial information.
