About

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.

The research topics of our members range considerably, but current efforts focus on:
•  Quantitative dimensions of Place and Space
•  Human activity patterns and trajectory analysis
•  Location privacy and security
•  Geographic knowledge representation
•  Analytical and behavioral geographic science
•  Neighborhood and vague regional boundary delineation
•  Spatiotemporal data mining
