This project has focused on foundational research into the creation of a transformational, dynamic environment for pedagogy, knowledge construction, discourse, collaboration, and research in the domain of Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIS&T).

Central to the project is a transformation of the GIS&T BoK into a core ontology for the field (BoKOnto). Led by Dr. Sean Ahearn of Hunter College, the CARSI Lab team (Dr. Ilknur Icke and Tri Datta) built a computational system that exposes this ontology to various end user applications via severalweb services.
