Abstract. As director of UCSB’s Center for Spatial Studies, my role is largely to moderate, facilitate, and provide an overall vision for our research. With the academic year coming to an end, I would like to use this opportunity to present some personal thoughts on spatial thinking, semantics, and theories of categorization by sharing a campus photography project during COVID in an interactive and, hopefully, cheerful style. Overall, the talk will be more about photography and society as compared to geoinformatics (in a narrower sense).

Google Earth Web (and KML) was used for an optional geographic discovery game.
