Version 0.9.2 (November 2022)

Introducing CyberGISX 0.9.2

We are pleased to announce the release of version 0.9.2 of 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. Users can register for free CyberGISX accounts using their institutional credentials to access the CyberGISX platform.

CyberGISX has been developed by a team led by Dr. Shaowen Wang within 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 supported in part 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. Users from more than 4,000 universities, research institutes, and academic organizations in the US and worldwide can quickly register and start using CyberGISX with their institutional credentials.

The release of CyberGISX 0.9.2 includes the following updates for its key components.


Key New Features


  • New home page design: The new design is created to guide users through the features we offer on the CyberGISX platform and allow people to interact with the UI elements.
  • New user profile layout: The new layout allows users to showcase their content better with the highlight content section (most recent notebook) next to the user information, followed by all other content. Additionally, the user profile page now supports the small screen size. You can see your new profile page at:
  • Copy user profile page URL function: Viewers can copy the URL with the new copy button.
  • Easy access to edit profile page: Users can click on their profile picture to the edit profile page.
  • Add new content buttons: Now, users can create content more easily directly on their profile.


  • Cern Virtual Machine File System (CVMFS) – We have redesigned how we deliver software within CyberGIS-Jupyter. We believe this will drastically increase performance, applicability, and reproducibility and allow us to make the software environment available in various settings.
