State Key Laboratory Cultivation Base of Geographical Environment Evolution (Jiangsu Province)

Director: Guonian Lv
Secretary: Jieyu Zhou


State Key Laboratory Cultivation Base of Geographical Environment Evolution (Jiangsu Province) is based on Nanjing Normal University. It combines with the National Key Disciplines of Cartography and Geographic Information System, National Key Discipline of Human Geography (cultivated), Jiangsu Provincial Key Discipline of Geographic Information System as well as Jiangsu Provincial Key Disciplines of Geography,  Postdoctoral Station of Geography as the supporting platform, combines the Key Laboratory of Police Geographic Information Technology (The Ministry of Public Security) and Geographic Information Engineering Technology Center of Jiangsu Province, thus building an innovative research team incorporated with national outstanding youth fund achiever, "Yangtze River" scholar of the Ministry of Education and China's Medium- and Long-Term Talent Development Plan. In recent years, the laboratory took more than 40 items including the national 973 and 863 project, national scientific and technological support and other major projects, 76 items including major project of national social science fund, national natural science fund (outstanding youth fund, key and outstanding youth fund projects), more than 540 scientific research and technological development projects, the total research fund reached more than 0.281 billion yuan. And it has achieved a number of domestic and international research results with 3 state-level awards and 16 provincial and ministerial level awards. The results have been selected in the first ten technology development progress and national basic research news in higher school.
