The Ecoinformatics and GIS Laboratory is a common infrastructure and internal service for the Centre for Ecological Research through an integration of hardware and software solutions with existing spatial ecological and environmental datasets and leading-edge research methodologies.

The lab provides new capabilities to
- spatial analysis and predictive modelling of species, habitats and ecosystems of the Carpathian basin,
- assessment of ecosystem services in relation with biodiversity, land use change and climate change,
- risk assessment of alien invasive species
- ecological remote sensing methodology development.
