Nottingham Geospatial Institute (NGI)

NGI is based in the Nottingham Geospatial Building (NGB) within the University Nottingham Innovation Park (UNIP) on the University of Nottingham's Jubilee Campus.

Nottingham Geospatial institute (NGI)

The Nottingham Geospatial Institute (NGI) was formed in the summer of 2011 to combine the strengths of two world renowned and well established research groups at the University of Nottingham; the Institute of Engineering Surveying and Space Geodesy IESSG), and the Centre for Geospatial Science (CGS).

The Institute has excellent facilities with its past activities earning global renown for cutting edge research. NGI research feeds into ongoing post-graduate programmes, which continue to generate worldwide demand and respect.

The core of Institute research activity has traditionally focused around satellite navigation and positioning systems, this has widened to include fields such as photogrammetry, remote sensing, sensor integration and geographical information systems.
