The lab and its members have been an active proponents of Open Source Geospatial technologies in Education, Research and Projects that they are involved in. It has evolved into a platform for people to meet, discuss, develop and share appropriate approaches in adopting Open Source and its Principles in their respective works.
LSI has helped develop and apply open source technologies in high resolution satellite image processing, data fusion on smart devices, spatio-temporal big data, city planning and land use models and water resource management.
Recently the Lab released LSIViewer 2.0, an online spatial data viewer, whose source code is also released on GitHub.
