LDSA, in its short time of existence, given the fact of the experience of the scientists working in it or collaborating with it, is oriented towards the applied demographic analysis, the development of an analysis and management database software, and to an automated cartography of these products. Significant specialisation has been achieved in the development of: friendly to the user database management tools, statistical analysis of these data, autonomous applications of Geographical Information Systems with emphasis on the thematic cartography and internet applications. This project has educational, research and operational dimensions.


LDSA has developed five web sites:

  • The first,  includes a presentation of the Lab and its members / collaborators as well as an analytical description of its activities (in Greek) and a summary presentation in English.

  • The second, , has been created in the context of LDSA’s participation in the Pandora project aiming to develop a Digital Demographic Atlas of Greece, financed by the General Secretariat of Research and Technology (GSRT). It includes online - real time data bases, working, educational, mapping and visualization tools as well as statistical analysis tools.
