In 2001 The Lewis F. Rogers Institute for Environmental & Spatial Analysis (IESA) at Gainesville was established as an interdisciplinary teaching, research, and public service resource for the North Georgia Region. The goals of the Institute are 1) education in geospatial technology to address workforce needs as identified by the Department of Labor (DOL) and others, 2) to encourage interdisciplinary education and scholarship with greater faculty involvement across disciplines and with service communities, and 3) to work collaboratively with local governments, school districts, and state and federal agencies concerned with environmental issues, and provide service and education that meets local environmental needs. The Institute promotes environmental education through the use of advanced technology, interdisciplinary instruction, collaborative learning, and service. IESA brings together the perspectives of numerous disciplines through the synthesis of geospatial technology, applications, and theory to address social, human, and environmental issues. Students, faculty, and staff work together with industry, government, and community partners through their coursework resulting in a dynamic and socially relevant learning environment. The Institute offers courses in environmental engineering, environmental science, environmental studies, geology, geography, geomatics, geospatial science, and space studies.
