GEOMODLAB – Laboratory for Remote Sensing, Geographical Analysis and Modelling

GEOMODLAB is the CEG/IGOT infrastructure to support advanced research on spatial analysis in the following themes:
– Earth and Society observation and monitoring;
– Statistical analysis of social phenomena;
– New technologies of mapping and spatial modelling.

GEOMODLAB provides researchers at the CEG, advanced students at IGOT and visiting researchers with the technological means to develop internationally competitive research and applications in geographical sciences. It includes GIS and Remote Sensing dedicated computers, as well as an UAV-maintenance workshop. It has an interdisciplinary infrastructure that benefits from synergies emerging between physical geography, human geography, planning and geographical information technologies, and applies them to scientific research and spatial planning.

Coordination: Gonçalo Vieira and Paulo Morgado.
