Applied Information Integration
Deciding on optimal options requires multiple sources of information to be considered. This is a key focal point for directing how MaREI’s EO & GIS Applications team do their research. The researchers regularly deploy their skills in advanced spatial analyses, geo-statistics, and web-GIS within their applied research, using the cutting-edge GIS technologies available through partner institutes. Through the Marine Irish Digital Atlas (MIDA), and their leadership of the International Coastal Atlas Network (ICAN), the team are kept at the forefront of international metadata standards, coastal decision support needs and tailored applications, and data integration and information display. Being integrated closely with MaREI’s Governance research has also enabled the GIS researchers to excel in visual information presentation and delivery modes and techniques.
