Geospatial Systems

Our Geospatial Systems CDT is a collaborative partnership between Newcastle University and the University of Nottingham.

It will provide the UK with a world-leading generation of engineers, scientists and practitioners trained in geospatial data, analytics, modelling and visualisation. This will help enable the UK to maximise the economic benefits of the 'open' geospatial data revolution. 

These benefits have been widely recognised, with the global geospatial industry predicted to be worth $500bn by 2020

We will equip our PhD students with knowledge and skills in:

  • the Internet of Things
  • Big Data management
  • new analytical methods such as Artificial Intelligence

We will provide industry-informed training on innovation, enterprise, leadership and engagement, including Responsible Research and Innovation.
