Program description

The topics covered in this course will provide you with an in-depth knowledge of geo-information technology that can be readily applied in your home organization

There is an increasing need for organizations to efficiently acquire and exploit geo-information. The emphasis is therefore on the integration and reuse of geo-information and the associated production process. Such efforts are the core activity of building spatial data infrastructures (SDIs). To handle the ever-increasing volumes of data storage and data flow between computer systems, the characteristics and functionality of such infrastructures require special attention from different technical perspectives: data acquisition, processing and dissemination.

The Master degree course addresses the needs of geoinformatics engineers who wish to improve their skills in using integrated geo-information production technology. An integral part of the course is the operational management of geo-information production systems, including design, planning, maintenance (execution, quality control) and exploitation. The course is designed for young and mid-career engineering staff at governmental organizations or companies such as mapping agencies that deal with geo-information.
