Organisations Involved


Mimas is an organisation of experts. Our role is to support the advancement of knowledge, powering world-class research and teaching. As a nationally designated data centre, we host a significant number of the UK’s research information assets – and build applications to help people make the most of this rich resource.


Landmap is a JISC-funded service which hosts a combination of remotely-sensed imagery and spatial data information unique in UK academia and is organised into 5 collections: Optical & Thermal; Radar; Elevation; Feature and UKMap. Landmap offers online courses to the geospatial community developed to enhance spatial data knowledge for research, teaching and CPD.


Jorum is a JISC-funded service in UK Further and Higher Education, which collects and shares learning and teaching materials, allowing their reuse and repurposing. This free online repository service forms a key part of the JISC Information Environment, and is intended to become part of the wider landscape of repositories being developed institutionally, locally, regionally or across subject areas.

Centre for Geospatial Science (CGS)

CGS is a major cross-disciplinary research centre, established in April 2005 under the Directorship of Professor Mike Jackson based at The University of Nottingham.
