Geoinformatics

geoinformatics

Geoinformatics is a broad and integrative academic discipline focused on collecting, organizing, and using spatial data and developing or implementing integrated geographic technologies for measuring and interpreting near-surface processes or activities on Earth. Our expertise ranges from theoretical spatial pattern analyses in disturbed boreal forest landscapes to the study of non-linear properties of Earth systems and the prediction of environmental impacts. Our work touches on several branches of geoinformatics, including remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), spatial analysis, photogrammetry, GPS, cartography, surveying, and web mapping.
