Geography, Geoinformatics & Meteorology

Welcome to the University of Pretoria’s Department of Geography, Geoinformatics and Meteorology.

We offer quality education to both undergraduate and postgraduate students in environmental science, geography, geoinformatics and meteorology. We are proud to provide higher education in Africa for Africa.
Our research focuses on geographic spaces, such as the physical aspects of the Earth below, on and above the ground; how human society is shaped by the world around us; the spatial patterns and processes that describe the behaviour of animals and humans; the inter-disciplinary study of our environment; and how geospatial information and technologies can be used to understand the above.
The Department is closely aligned with the Centre for Environmental Studies (CFES) and the Laboratory for Atmospheric Studies (LAS).
