About the Lab

The Platial Analysis Lab is a research group based out of McGill University at the intersection of geoinformatics, behavioral geography, information science. As the name suggests, the Platial Analysis Lab pulls apart the concept of place, taking a data-driven and behavioral approach to understanding the dimensions that contribute to how we understand and explain the world around us.
Topics of Interest include:
•  Quantitative dimensions of Place and Space

•  Location privacy and security
•  Geographic knowledge representation
•  Analytical and behavioral geographic science
•  Neighborhood and vague regional boundary delineation
