About Us

The Geospatial Engineering Group supports the development and training of Open Source Geospatial technologies.  We utilise these technologies to carry out fundamental research and to deliver geospatial solutions to engineering problems.  See the Project pages for more.  We also provide training both as part of our Undergraduate degree programmes in Surveying and Mapping Science, Geographic Information Science and Physical Geography as well as through short training courses delivered to customers.  We currently provide training courses in Open Source GIS, Quantum GIS and PostGIS (the spatial extension to the PostgreSQL open source database).  

As part of our initiative to engage with industry we also provide on-site training and bespoke consultancy services on Open Source geospatial technologies.
