Geo-information Science and Earth Observation

space for global development 

Research related to the Master’s Geo-information Science and Earth Observation is carried out within the framework of a coherent research programme.

The research programme of ITC develops cutting-edge knowledge and innovative approaches in the field of geo-information science and earth observation. The programme addresses applications of geospatial data to space and resource management and the provision of geospatial data for the user community, with emphasis on solving problems in developing countries.

To ensure that new knowledge and innovation in space and resource management and in the provision of geospatial data lead to societal benefits, the programme is based on six research themes and the umbrella theme. Each theme has a varying emphasis on each of three domains:

  • earth observation and geo-information processing technologies
  • geospatial processes (e.g. earth sciences, social sciences) that play a role in the thematic field
  • ways for society associated with the thematic field to access and exploit new knowledge and innovation
