AIRO is a research and consultancy unit based at NIRSA in NUI Maynooth. We specialise in socio-demographic analysis, spatial analysis (GIS), spatial planning and data analytics. Most of our research and consultancy work is in the area of demographics, economy, housing and the environment. We deliver projects for both public and private sector clients on the island of Ireland and are involved in a number of pan-European spatial planning projects.

We host a series of public good mapping and data visualisation tools. These take the form of census mapping modules for every local and regional authority, national mapping viewers with the Central Statistics Office, mapping tools for secondary schools and a wide variety of data visualisation tools such as our Dublin City Dashboard, EU2020 indicators and the GHDI Dashboard.

AIRO is a big supporter of the OpenData movement and as such we make as much of our data available to the public through our AIRO DataStore.

With lots of experience working with data we like to share our knowledge. Sign up for one of our Data for Decisions (D4D) workshops to turn your data into insight.
