Photogrammetric technology is trained on modern digital workstations including sophisticated analytical systems. Focus is on processing aerial photographs starting from scanning, automated aero triangulation andacquisition of digital elevation models up to orthoimage generation and topographic and thematic mapping. Gaining experience in working with alternative data sources of increasing importance like high resolution remote sensing satellites, radar and airborne laser scanning, round off the modern photogrammetric education.

The main topics focused on in the field of Geoinformatics are the acquisition, storage, analysis, retrieval and display of spatially related data concerning both the earth's physical features and the built-up environment. Studying the methods for data modelling in geoinformation systems, design and handling diverse databases, GIS-data formats, GIS customisation including its programming, all accompanied by intensive training are important parts of the postgraduate course. Most recent developments like World Wide Web-technologies, 3D-visualisation and integration of GIS and photogrammetry prepare the participants of the course for the future.

The students of the course obtain a scientific and practically-oriented education and training in the fields of photogrammetry, remote sensing and geoinformation science. An important objective is the transfer of up-to-date techniques to practice under different technological conditions.

The M.Sc. course is designed, in particular, for future decision makers and senior engineers of information and land management projects, national authorities for mapping, photogrammetry, land consolidation, cadastre, forestry, agriculture, rural and urban planning or environment monitoring.

Complete applications have to be submitted in English. In addition to the official DAAD application form, candidates are required to submit a particular course application form which is available from
