    About SDL: The Spatial Data Lab (http://spatialdatalab.org) project aims to promote the development and implementation of a new generation of methodologies and technologies for spatial data analysis, spatial data sharing, and applied research in fields such as population, business, environment, and health. The main components of the SDL include: (1) spatial data services; (2) spatial data analysis platform and tools; (3) case studies based on workflow data analysis for replicable, reproducible and expandable research; and (4) spatial data science training. It is co-sponsored by a few organizations including Michigan-based China Data Institute, Future Data Lab (non-profit organization), and the IUCRC Spatiotemporal Innovation Center where Harvard Center for Geographic Analysis is a research site.
