The Applied Remote Sensing and GIS Group works with raster and vector data from various data sources to provide information which can assist in enhanced environmental management. A flagship GIS project is the Marine Irish Digital Atlas (MIDA), which is a key source of data and information regarding Ireland’s coastal and marine areas. Other research, where GIS analysis is fundamental, focuses on the mapping of tourism and leisure opportunities along the coast. Together with the geoinformatics cluster in UCC’s department of Geography the group is one of the leaders in remote sensing analysis in the country. Applications include storm surge forecasting, improving ocean biogeochemical products, subsidence mapping in raised bogs, vegetation seasonality monitoring, soil moisture estimation and ship detection.
Please note that the Applied Remote Sensing and GIS Group was set up in 2011 and a more comprehensive list of completed RS & GIS related projects can be found in the Marine Geomatics completed projects list
