Welcome to Geoinformatics


The Geoinformatics division at the Department for Urban Planning and Environment is responsible for both research and education within the broad field of geographical information technology (GeoIT). Geoinformatics or GeoIT is the science and technology for collection, management, visualization, analysis and presentation of geospatial data.

The research at the Geoinformatics Division at KTH is focused on methdology development and the applications of GeoIT for sustainable urban/regional planning, environmental monitoring, crime analysis, and health studies.

The Geoinformatics Division is responsible for the GeoIT Profile in the Built Environment Program and for the International Masters of Science Program in Geodesy and Geoinformatics. The Division also offers GeoIT courses to other disciplines such as Urban Planning and Design, Spatial Planning and Real Estate Economics.

We currently have a staff of fifteen members (including part time).
