Measuring the Earth as a Modern Science
Measuring the earth is a cutting-edge scientific task for geodesists and geoinformatics specialists. Using state-of-the-art measuring sensors and satellite technology, they collect geodata and determine positions. The processing, analysis and visualisation of spatial information is carried out using sophisticated computer-assisted procedures in geo information systems. Whether it is a question of the shape of the earth, rising sea levels or the movements of the earth’s crust - with the help of geodesy and geoinformatics valuable data can be collected and evaluated.
