The lead software architect at Esri, Scott Morehouse has had a profound effect on the field of GIScience by having applied his deep knowledge of information systems to the development of Esri software for more than 25 years. Hanan Samet, of the University of Maryland's Computer Science Department and its Institute of Advanced Computer Studies, is an internationally eminent scholar in the theory and development of spatial data structures. Lastly, Dr. John Wilson, Director of the Spatial Sciences Institute at the University of Southern California, is recognized for both his early research in terrain representation and analysis as well as his leadership at envisioning new directions for GIScience education and research in the 21st century.
 
The UCGIS Fellows Program was created in 2010 to celebrate the extraordinary record of achievements of individuals in a variety of spatial disciplines and communities of practice that use spatial information. These new Fellows were selected by a review committee comprised of the current UCGIS Fellows and members of the UCGIS Executive Committee.
