Spatial Finance defines the coupling of GI Science, Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs) and Green Finance. This study examines the implications of Spatial Finance on the political-economy of SDIs and the impacts of SDI structures, relationships and institutions on the political-economy and geographies of Green Finance. This research foregrounds the field of Green Finance in SDI research and highlights how GIS is enabling the financing of the low-carbon transition. This places new socio- economic and socio-ecological significance on SDIs and GI Science and opens avenues for Critical GIS studies to inform research on the practice and politics of financialized climate governance.
