What is CyberGISX

CyberGISX is an open online platform that provides streamlined and user-friendly access to advanced cyberinfrastructure and cyberGIS capabilities with an integrated software stack for computationally reproducible and data-intensive geospatial analytics. Each user needs to register for a CyberGISX account to use the CyberGISX platform. CyberGISX has been developed by a team led by Dr. Shaowen Wang at the CyberGIS Center for Advanced Digital and Spatial Studies (CyberGIS Center) & CyberInfrastructure and Geospatial Information Laboratory (CIGI Lab) at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. CyberGISX is built on more than a decade of leading-edge research on cyberGIS mainly supported by several U.S. federal agencies such as the National Science Foundation. It has been used in a variety of geospatial-related domains such as agriculture, geography and spatial sciences, hydrology and water resources, and public health.

The community notebook showcase web page facilitates sharing research and resources contained in interactive notebooks. This platform is supported by a Jupyter Notebook-based interactive code base that has been developed specifically to facilitate geospatial cyberinfrastructure and software use. Many powerful CyberGIS and geospatial libraries have already been built into the system! Built-in support for commonly used software libraries, shared data sources, and access to high-performance computing and big data resources is also available.
