Participating Institutions

The handling of data influenced by systematic and stochastic errors, the modelling of spatial data and their uncertainties and the optimal (recursive) estimation of system states are central core competences in the field of geodesy and geoinformatics, to which almost all applicants belong.

The long lasting close cooperation and the continuous scientific exchange between the participating institutes of the discipline - the Geodetic Institute, the Institute of Geodesy, the Institute of Photogrammetry and GeoInformation and the Institute of Cartography and Geoinformatics - provide a solid scientific basis for the objectives of the GRK 2159. Prof. Wagner (Institute for Systems Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science) complements this expertise in the field of systems engineering and spatial and temporal integrity aspects.
