About the department
The Department of Geo-information Processing (GIP) is a multi-disciplinary scientific department that develops computational methods for processing spatiotemporal data, which in turn are used to build models, visualizations and information systems to improve our understanding of dynamic spatial systems and to help in decision-making at multiple spatial and temporal scales. GIP is not tied to a single application domain but develops generic geo-information and geo-products that are widely applicable.
About the organisation
The Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) provides international postgraduate education, research and project services in the field of geo-information science and earth observation. Our mission is capacity development, where we apply, share and facilitate the effective use of geo-information and earth observation knowledge and tools for tackling global wicked problems. Our purpose is to enable our many partners around the world to track and trace the impact – and the shifting causes and frontiers – of today’s global challenges. Our vision is of a world in which researchers, educators, and students collaborate across disciplinary and geographic divides with governmental and non-governmental organisations, institutes, businesses, and local populations to surmount today’s complex global challenges and to contribute to sustainable, fair, and digital societies.
