The SPINlab carries out research on geo-information sciences and spatial information management. We apply a wide range of spatial analysis methods and techniques on a broad range of topics. Depending on the research topic at hand, our focus lies on one or more of the following processes:

Common depiction of a spatial analysis process
  • Data collection & preparation
  • Spatial Analysis
    (from exploratory analysis to explanatory modelling)
  • Visualisation & Communication
    (static maps, interactive (web) maps & graphs, infographics)
