Geoinformatics

Geoinformatics at Aalto University is a truly multidisciplinary field. Our research and its applications cover a wide range of themes from human-centred to natural environments.
View from the plane used in remote sensing.

Global challenges such as the uneven distribution of natural resources, security and climate issues, urban development and sprawl and a growing demand for energy all involve a significant spatial component. Our mission is to conduct research and teaching in the collection, management and analysis of geospatial information for a wide range of themes and scales, from local to global.

Research areas

Our research areas include Geodesy, Geoinformation technology , Digital photogrammetry and laser scanning and Remote sensing. Learn more about our teaching activities!
