Program description

If your interest goes beyond existing technology and you want to know and influence what lies behind it, as well as research and design cutting-edge solutions, this course is for you.

Geographical and earth sciences are relying increasingly on digital spatial data acquired from remotely sensed images, analysed by geographical information systems (GIS), distributed through complex infrastructures, and visualized on the computer screen or on paper by an ever-increasing variety of users. The technologies supporting these processes form the core of geoinformatics. Technological skills alone, however, are not sufficient for organizations involved in the production and management of such geo-information.

Owing to the rapid changes and developments in geo-information acquisition, analysis and dissemination, these organizations require scientific staff that can keep pace with and validate the relevancy of such developments, design new systems and infrastructures, and explore new-edge technology for efficient and effective implementation.

Common concepts and theory of Geoinformatics technology; e.g. computer science, Remote Sensing, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Cartographic Visualization & Geo-information Management, MSc Research work.

To achieve critical understanding and competence in the development of systems for the acquisition, processing, transformation, extraction, storage, presentation and/or use of geo-information.
