National Centre for Social Applications of GIS (GISCA)
Under the Australian Population and Migration Research Centre, GISCA continues to provide a wide range of consultancy services to the University of Adelaide, other Australian Universities, as well as a range of public and private sector clients.
GISCA's establishment in July 1995 was funded by the Australian Research Council as a joint Key Centre venture between six core partners - the three South Australian universities (Flinders University, University of Adelaide and University of South Australia), the Australian Bureau of Statistics, and the South Australian Departments of Housing and Urban Development and Environment and Natural Resources.
When the ARC Key centre funding ended in 2001, the joint venture ended, and GISCA continued as an independent unit within the University of Adelaide. It became part of the Australian Institute of Social Research in 2004 and in 2010 became a reseach centre within the School of Social Sciences.
To make an enquiry about spatial consultancy services available through the Australian Population and Migration Research Centre, or other research initiatives that the Centre could contribute or undertake for your organisation, please email APMRC.
