Universität Bonn

Geodesy and Geoinformation

Geodetic Engineering

... is a modern study program with a focus on natural science and an interdisciplinary approach. It deals with the digitization of the earth - at global, regional and local scales.

Geodesists develop methods that enable us to determine a location on earth by analyzing signals from global satellites constellations (GPS). This makes it possible, for example, to precisely predict the rise in sea level, or to find out from your smartphone where the next pizzeria is or the fastest way to get from here to Rome.

The geodata that accompany the coordinates are provided by geoinformation - which uses state-of-the-art sensors to record data, process it with computer support, distribute it via the internet and represent it in multimedia form.
