Data Visualization and GIS


The giCentre is based in the Department of Computer Science at City, University of London. We specialise in developing and applying new techniques for visualizing data. This ranges from visualization of 'big data' to personalised data presentation; from visual analytics to visual story telling; from cartography and GIS to statistical graphics.

We are a team of 14 academics and researchers with expertise in information visualization, cartography, design, computer graphics, human-computer interaction and geographic information science. As well as innovating in information and analytic visualization, we work extensively with a range of applied practitioners. Some of the clients we have worked with include Transport for London, Nokia, Eon Energy, Unruly Media, MediaCom, Willis Group, Leicestershire County Council , the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory and the BBC.

Details of activities and opportunities are available on the giCentre website and details about applying to a research degree in the Department of Computer Science can be found on our PhD/MPhil course pages.
