Geographic Information Science (GIScience) is a 21st Century revolution in the way we collect, visualize and interpret Spatial Data. Here at the Roger Tomlinson Lab, we advance GIScience by developing new theories of Geospatial Data Management, as well as encourage discourse on emergent new technologies such as Big Data and Machine Learning.

We decided to name our lab in honour of Dr. Roger Tomlinson, the "father of GIS" who (among his other degrees) obtained a Masters degree in Geography from McGill University. He also inaugurated the Lab when he was given an Honorary Doctorate from McGill. You can read his doctoral dissertation regarding CGIS at the University College London repository here.Why "The Roger Tomlinson Lab"? +
