This issue of Vertices highlights the transition in leadership of the Center for Spatial Studies from Michael Goodchild (geographer and founder of the Center) to Mary Hegarty (psychologist and scholar of spatial cognition.
Special attention is given to two educational innovations—the Center's development of what is possibly the world's first undergraduate minor in spatial studies and the introduction of a freshman seminar on Thinking Spatially in the Arts and Sciences.
In addition, Daniel Montello sumarizes the results of an interdisciplinary conference at UC Merced on Exploring the Cave Experience from Multidisciplinary Perspectives and Kitty Currier has described the revival of the Center's Spatial Technology Lunch discussions.
