The Finnish Geospatial Research Institute FGI undertakes scientific research of a high quality, which is internationally known and appreciated within the spatial data field. The new Research Strategy is for the period 2018–2023.
Movements of the Earth's crust cause changes in coordinate reference systems. Significant changes in the mass of glaciers and flows in the Earth's mantle have an impact on the global climate, glaciers and sea level.
Spatial Data Solutions Supporting Digitalisation
The spatial data infrastructure (SDI) consists of spatial data products available in an online service environment, metadata supporting the finding and taking into use of such products and services to forward spatial data to various applications utilising the SDI.
Smart Environments and Interaction
Processes become smart through digitalisation. They provide situational awareness to assist in decision-making. The interaction between processes and decision-making is becoming seamless.
Robotics and Intelligent Transportation Systems
The market for remote sensing using small unmanned aerial vehicles and robots are growing exponentially. Our aim is to facilitate the development of innovations in navigation and positioning technology for the good of society.
