The analysis of spatially explicit data is common to population research, especially demography,
and contemporary sustainability science, whether around planning, spatiotemporal modeling of
species distributions, or remote sensing/GIS and associated spatial modeling. There are numerous
groups on campus with strengths in various areas of spatial analysis; however, the level of
interaction and collaboration between these groups is currently unclear. Moreover, faculty, student
and staff that lack specialization in spatial methods may be unaware of the resources and skills that
currently exist on campus.
The objective of this lunch, sponsored jointly by the CCSF and the Cornell Population Program
(www.cpp.cornell.edu), was to determine what sorts of activities are currently taking place on
campus, where prospective collaborations might prove fruitful, what structural barriers to
collaboration and research may or may not exist, and related topics. Three speakers from diverse
groups (ORIE, Natural Resources, and Developmental Sociology) gave short presentations on their
work to help initiate discussion. Ultimately, a wide range of topics were discussed; however, two
central themes emerged from the discussion, both of which relate to facilitating and improving intra-
