This document is the proposal for an NICHD-supported training program on GIS and Population Science that was implemented by the Population Research Institute at Pennsylvania State University and the Center for Spatially Integrated Social Science at UC Santa Barbara in 2005-2007. Focused on early career scholars, 2-week-long workshops explored the practices and issues of using spatial data in such fields as demography, epidemiology, and public health.
