The geoinformation group led by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jan-Henrik Haunert focuses on the development of efficient algorithms for the automatic analysis and visualization of spatial information. Thereby, we lay the foundations for the next generations of geoinformation systems (GIS), interactive visualization systems, navigation systems, and location-based services.

We hold courses on geoinformation systems, spatial databases, programming, algorithms, and cartography for students in the German-taught BSc program Geodäsie und Geoinformation. In the German-taught MSc program Geodäsie und Geoinformation as well as in the English-taught MSc program Geodetic Engineering, we focus on algorithmic aspects of geoinformation science.
