Geospatial Engineering

Geospatial engineering research combines geospatial data acquisition, management and analysis to facilitate decision making.

Examples include:

  • modelling our environment spatially to simulate and predict the effects of climate change
  • using satellite imagery to track landscape change in remote areas
  • use of hyperspectral laser scanning to estimate forest health
  • integrating real-time data into real-time modelling

See more details about what we do on our blog and our Open Source Geo Lab site.
