About Us

Our mission

Spatial-Ecology provides training in open-source software for geospatial data processing. We equip researchers, analysts and programmers of all skill levels with the essential tools to master geodata research across various disciplines. We support the development, distribution and adoption of free and open source technology for use in data science research, education and product development.

Our aim is to conduct research, provide training and promote the use of digital information to benefit human health, the environment, natural capital, and trade and commerce. The Spatial Ecology wiki-based platform is offered as a resource for learning about free and open source programming for data processing.
