Organization Profile

Geo-computation is “the art and science of solving complex spatial problems with computers”. Its concern is to enrich geography with methods to model and analyze a range of highly complex, often non-deterministic socioeconomic and natural problems. The Centre for Geo-computation Studies (CGS) aims to ally worldwide organizations, companies, and individuals to devote to geo-computation studies and advance the applicability and adaptability of geo-computation theories, methods, and tools.

The basic function of the centre is to develop inter-institutional collaboration, knowledge sharing and joint research student education. Studies are focused on advanced geo-computation and spatial analysis not only on their scientific principles but also the implementation in related software research and engineering. The centre also aims to undertake research in geo-computation applications to natural resource and environment, as well as regional socio-economic development, by taking the multi-disciplinary approach.
