The Geospatial Unit works towards the application of GeoScience in real decision contexts, such as climate change adaptation, hydrological effects of changes in climate and land cover, targeting of agroforestry interventions, provision of soil fertility and surveillance advisory services for smallholder farmers, digital soil and land use/cover mapping, and measuring impacts of interventions, all using open source software.

The Geospatial Unit in particular focusses on tools, methods and services around:

  • Time-series analysis
  • Toolkits for interactive modeling
  • Mapping of phenology
  • Species abundance mapping
  • Species diversity mapping (e.g. trees)
  • Vegetation analysis
  • Soil mapping (e.g. SOC, pH, etc.)
