Ms. Follosco, who is a University Researcher at CSC, will talk about the field of geoinformatics and how its techniques and tools for the acquisition, processing, management, analysis and presentation of geospatial data are employed today in many applications and fields. In particular, her lecture will present the results of some recent studies that show how the developed tools and innovations in geoinformatics can be utilized to enrich spatial analysis in social and natural science research.
