Spatial Data Analysis Using Geographic Information Systems

Research and Development in Spatial Data Analysis

Our research is constantly aiming to integrate environment with information technology, crossing disciplinary borders among the natural and commercial sciences and incorporating stakeholders from industries, politics, and society.

Spatial analysis is the crux of GIS because it includes all of the transformations, manipulations, and methods that can be applied to geographic data to add value to them, to support decisions, and to reveal patterns and anomalies that are not immediately obvious. UIZ research team is aware of the GIS’s potential and its usefulness in the spatial data analysis. The GIS that is developed by UIZ is getting an extremely powerful tool in in-house research, where UIZ specialists use this software to give their own contribution in this intersection. The target is to create a method for spatial data analysis that whose results quality won’t be questioned, not even the limitations. The limitless software combined with the human skills can be an unquestionable tool for spatial data analysis, worldwide. So far, our research team is on a right way.

The areas where this tool can be used and where spatial data analysis is necessary are uncountable, but they can be divided into  4 themes for analysis: a) Forest, Agriculture, and Environment; b) Water Availability, Quality, Accessibility, and Monitoring; c) Water Cycle and Climate; d) Integrated Water Resource Management. 

Environmental Research

UIZ focuses on environmental research and development. We have passionate and qualified professionals in the following fields: Environment, Geoinformatics and Hydrogeological service. Our experienced professionals and engineering team are dedicated to serving in the field of geoinformatics, remote sensing and GIS systems for the benefit of the industries and commercial applications. The most common analyses powered with GIS that our specialists use are:

a) Analyses based on distance (Measuring Distance and Length, Buffering, Cluster Detection)

b) Analyses based on location (Spatial Joins, The Point-in-Polygon Operation, Polygon Overlay, Raster Analysis)

All of this methods are improved with human intelligence, with the human power of our company- UIZ geologists, environment experts, and data analysts.  These research and development themes, aligned with the human skills and integrated into many projects do not only coexist, they are interlinked.
