Geoinformatics is a progressive field dealing with the solution of territorial problems by advanced digital technologies. Geoinformatics is used in weather forecasting from satellite systems, traffic navigation, land management, urban planning, environmental management, modeling and simulation of natural hazards, and many other issues. Geoinformatics is the basis for geographic information systems (GIS), Earth observation and remote sensing, global navigation satellite systems, digital terrain modeling, spatial statistics, and other spatial information technologies.
Cartography is the science, technology, and art of map-making and map use. Visualization of any spatial data (climate, demographic, economic, transport, etc.) is based on cartographic methods, creation of maps, atlases, animations, web, and mobile applications.
The Department of Geoinformatics is one of the top European workplaces with high-quality laboratory and classroom equipment, rich international contacts, and experience with the study of foreign students in master and doctoral programs.
The tuition fee covers software licenses, access to facilities, and the use of a wide set of spatial data throughout the three-year study period.
