Geomatics-based spatial technology transforms the functionality of built environments and the administration of both public services and private enterprises.
We develop and apply spatial sensing, mapping, analysis and communication technology. The resulting spatial intelligence solutions enable new functional capabilities and enhance the resilience and productivity of myriad systems, from transport and planning through to disaster management.
Industry collaboration and engagement
Our engagement with industry partners is underlined by an intensive, multidisciplinary R&D program, focussing on:
- Ubiquitous positioning in indoor and outdoor environments
- Remote sensing, photogrammetry, LIDAR from aerial and ground-based platforms, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)
- Computer vision and scene understanding
- Engineering surveying
- 3D cadastre and land administration systems
- Spatial data infrastructures
- Disaster management and public safety
- Spatial analytics, simulation and visualisation
- Urban mobility and navigation systems
- Spatial cognitive engineering
- 3D mapping and modelling of indoor and outdoor environments.
Our research capability is supported by the outstanding R&D infrastructure and the transdisciplinary Research Platforms of Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology.
How to engage with us
We work with private and public sector partners on a broad range of real-world challenges, including precision positioning, location-based Internet of Things (IoT), 3D and virtual models, digital twins and building information models, urban analytics, and mobility analytics and support.
A range of partnership models are available:
Consulting and strategic use of technology
Assessing emerging technologies, technology implications for policy, research and systems engineering.
Based on contract or collaborative research models.
Student projects, internships and placements
Undergraduate and graduate student work experience, PhD candidate and postdoctoral internships.
