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 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.

The NGI research strategy builds on the established reputations of the former IESSG and CGS, growing its international reputation as a centre of excellence in its fields of activity. New developments and growth will be balanced by concerted efforts to ensure the long-term stability of the NGI through developing a portfolio of research council, European and industrial research funding.
