Research activities at the Centre for Cartography and GIS focus on map projection issues, error modeling and error propagation in GIS, and land-use/land-cover mapping from remotely sensed data. Presently the Centre is coordinating a research project on spatial information extraction for local and regional decision makers, using very-high-resolution remotely sensed data (SPIDER). The project is a collaboration between five Belgian university laboratories. The aim of the project is to investigate how present-day EO-technology can support local and regional decision-making, and to develop value-added products that respond to the information needs of Belgian local and regional authorities.
