Introducing Taylor Geospatial Engine And The Innovation Bridge Program

The Taylor Geospatial Engine is a non-profit, established in June 2023, with founding philanthropic funds from Andrew C. Taylor. Taylor Geospatial Engine (TGE) is a sister organization to the Taylor Geospatial Institute (TGI), which fuels research and collaboration around innovative geospatial approaches at eight Midwest research organizations. TGI focuses on core geospatial science and applying it to sustainable agriculture, public health and national security. TGE’s mission is to identify ways to find commercial applications for early stage, academic geospatial R&D.
