Geospatial Science

Colin’s research has concentrated on the application of spatial information systems, including geographic information systems (GIS), to investigating the impact of tourism on nature-based tourist destinations as well as employing GIS into the visualisation and analysis of cultural data (in particular cinema studies). Colin’s research into the impact of tourism also addresses the issue of how to incorporate time into spatial information systems such as GIS.
