Spatial context is relevant to an enormous amount of questions, problems and decisions. Maps and cartographic communication processes are keys for enabling humans to deal with all kind of spatial data in an efficient way. The domain of cartography can be seen as by definition very broad and interdisciplinary.
The four partner sites represent centers of excellence in the field of cartography, recognized at the European and global levels.
The Chair of Cartography of TUM, the Research Group Cartography of TUW, the Institute of Cartography of TUD and the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation of UT complement each other in an ideal way to provide an exceptional program with excellent job employment prospects in this interdisciplinary field.
The composition is a complementary approach of the partners’ different research and educational profiles in an area where each partner is a leader in their own country and recognized internationally.
