The Geospatial Analytics research lab — geospatial_analytics@CUT — conducts basic and applied research on spatial analysis, geostatistics, geocomputation and geoinformatics, focusing on geographic information science (GIScience) and systems (GIS), as well as relevant applications in engineering, earth and environmental sciences, public health and archaeology/cultural heritage. The lab is housed in the Department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics of the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT), in Lemesos (Limassol), Cyprus.

The lab’s mission is to foster the development of novel methods of geospatial information analysis & modeling, as well as to promote innovative applications of geospatial technologies towards geography-enabled problem-solving and decision-support.

Lab members are participating in the H2020 EXCELSIOR project that aims to establish the Cyprus-based ERATOSTHENES Centre of Excellence for Earth Surveillance and Space-Based Monitoring of the Environment.

geospatial_analytics@CUT already maintains strong ties with research and academic institutions locally and internationally (Europe, USA, Asia), yet is actively seeking to further expand its collaboration network.
