Geoinformatics

The research group works with mapping and measuring the world in order to do spatial planning and regulation, to make viable presumptions about future occurrences and to determine the effects of climate change and migration patterns.

Geoinformatics

Research 

The use of land and sea space is under pressure from population growth, economic development and climate change, and needs to be regulated by knowledge-driven spatial planning relying on high-quality data, innovative analytical tools and models.

The research group covers spatial planning, land management, maritime spatial planning, climate change, migration modelling, land-cover change, citizen science, mobilities studies, digital governance, urban structure and living, SDI, satellite positioning, geodesy, remote sensing, cadastral systems, and real property formation.

Key results

  • Promote the use of Galileo in Denmark and stimulate the use of precise satellite-based positioning, navigation, and timing, mobility, and UAVs.
  • Promote the use of more sustainable mobility solutions.
  • Insights about future land/maritime resources, population/migration patterns, citizen involvement in environmental monitoring and decision making.
