What's ITC all about?

Geoinformation management, worldwide and innovative

One of humankind's greatest challenges is to achieve an appropriate balance between developing natural resources and maintaining an optimal natural environment. To meet this challenge, we need detailed and reliable geo-information and geo-information management tools.

At the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC), knowledge of geo-information management is readily available and is continually being developed and extended. By means of education, research and project services, we contribute to capacity building in developing countries and emerging economies. In doing so, considerable attention is paid to the development and application of geographical information systems (GIS) for solving problems. Such problems can range from determining the risks of landslides, mapping forest fires, planning urban infrastructure, implementing land administration systems, monitoring food and water security, to designing a good wildlife management system or detecting environmental pollution.

The key words characterising our activities are geoinformation management, worldwide and innovative. We concentrate on earth observation, the generation of spatial information, and the development of data integration methods. Furthermore, we provide tools that can support the processes of planning and decision making for sustainable development and the alleviation of poverty in developing countries and emerging economies.
