Geospatial research, education and cooperation activities of the University of Turku
UTU Geospatial Labs hosts research and education expertise on geospatial data analysis and modelling, and location technology skills, innovations and impacts in the society.
Our team is studying various opportunities and challenges, which broader access to digital geospatial data, GIS and geospatial technologies and digital tools enables.
Using geospatial data originating from multiple sources, such as Earth Observation systems, national and global geospatial data repositories and in situ, we develop research methods and applications for improved mapping, modelling and analyses of natural and human systems and particularly their dynamic interactions and impacts to the environment and society.
Our research and education are targeting challenges confronted at multiple scales from local to global. We are interested in digital transformation, which geospatial data, knowledge and competence can trigger for better and more secure management of Earth systems and sustainability.
