What is Geoinformatics?

Geoinformatics science is a field of science that is still relatively young and is a blended between Geography with its Geospatial Analysis and Computer Science/Informatics with its computational techniques. The rapid changes occurring in the earth is an interaction between nature and human activities, and along with the acceleration of technology, analysis of geoscience with very large data size can now be resolved quickly.

Geoinformatics is the science and the technology which develops and uses information science infrastructure to address the problems of geography, geosciences, agricultures, engineering, and medicine recently.

Geoinformatics emphasizes the confluence of two rapidly advancing domains: Computer Science and Geographic Information Science; nowadays, Earth studies using more and more sophisticated computing theory and tools, and computer processing of Earth observations through Geographic Information System (GIS) attracts a great deal of attention from governmental, industrial and research worlds.


With the availability of modern computing technologies, advance algorithm, and the power of geospatial analysis, we develope a new methods and framework to push the boundary of geospatial dataset.

Targeted Applications/Industry

Innovation in WebGIS, Mobile GIS, UAV applications could be implemented in vary and wide field, from agriculture, energy, environmental assessment, urban environment, healthy, religious studies, public policy, to mining activities (i.e., oil & gas, coal and copper)
