Welcome to the Spatial Information Laboratory

The Spatial Information Laboratory (SPINlab) is the centre for research and education in Geo-Information Science at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. It is hosted by the School of Business and Economics

The mission of the SPINlab is to develop an internationally recognised research and education portfolio in the areas of Geo-Information Science and Technology.

Our main research lines are:

Further, we provide education in GI-science & systems, both on-site and via distance-learning. And we provide functional & technical support for staff and students who work with GI-software and/or have questions that can use some spatial thinking to come up with bright answers.
