We are happy to announce that the Platial Analysis Lab (with Professor Grant McKenzie as Principal Investigator) has been awarded 5 years of funding through the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Discovery Grant Competition.  This grant provides funding in support of research programs rather than projects and will primarily go towards graduate student research.  The title of the awarded proposal is “Platial Science: A multi-dimensional data signatures approach to modeling Place.”
