GIS Program

The GIS program provides an exceptional level of GIS and data management support services for fRI Research.

The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Program at fRI Research began in 1992 and has become an integral part of the organization. GIS staff work with researchers to facilitate sound data management practices and to undertake analysis processes. All researchers at fRI Research have full access to Geographic Information Systems and rich GIS data layers to enable them to perform their own analysis and mapping.
