Social Applications of GIS

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) offers a powerful integrating platform for social, spatial and environmental information, with potential to generate new knowledge and opportunities.

This research theme shares a consistent concern for people and social justice, and the desire to use and develop spatial technologies to advance demographic and migration analysis, service planning, reporting, funding allocations and social research. The Hugo Centre's work builds on the National Key Centre of Social Applications of GIS (GISCA).
