The Centre for Geoinformatics acts as a focus for research into geoinformatics across the School of Geography and Geosciences and other disciplines at the University.


Geoinformatics involves the collection, processing, analysis and display of spatial data sets. This includes any kind of spatial data, and may include spatio-temporal data.

Application areas include health, housing, environment, physical systems and movement ecology, urban analysis and digital humanities.
