Geodesy and Geoinformation take on key roles in our modern society as provider of information about geographical locations, environmental processes, physical fundamentals and are
pivotal in enabling access to social relevant spatial data. Since its early days in the 19th century, the Vienna University of Technology hosts scientists and engineers undertaking geospatial
data research. Today, a multitude of research fields in the evolving domain of geodesy and geoinformation is in the scope of our academic institution. The Department of Geodesy and
Geoinformation, which is part of the Faculty of Mathematics and Geoinformation, unites the seven research groups
and conducts research as well as teaching in modelling and communicating states and processes of planet Earth and objects in, upon and above it.
