The research group applies modern geospatial technologies widely in various research problems. Important theme areas include for instance geodata modelling, network services and browser-based applications. The group focuses specifically on open solutions - open standards, open data and open source software.
Essential research topics include interoperability of geospatial network services, harmonisation of geographic information, network service-based transformation, analysis and processing of geospatial data, use of cloud service platforms and technologies, and development of service interfaces. The research group participates in the harmonisation of the network services of European national mapping agencies and in the development of geospatial services for a Finnish research infrastructure.
The research group was established in September 2018.
