Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformation


The Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformation (IGG) was founded in 2006 by merging formerly independent geodetic chairs and institutes. These represent the entire current spectrum of geodesy and are based at 4 different buildings on the Campus Poppelsdorf.

The teaching staff consists of six professorships (Astronomical, Physical and Mathematical Geodesy, Geodesy, Geoinformation, Photogrammetry, Urban Development and Land-use Planning, Theoretical Geodesy) and 2 junior professorships (Earth System Reserch, Remote Sensing).

The study programs  "Geodesy und Geoinformation (B.Sc./M.Sc.)" and "Geodetic Engineering (M.Sc., engl.)" are two of the few engineering courses that can be studied at the University of Bonn.

The institute is part of the Faculty of Agriculture and a partner of the Faculty of Agriculture and member of the Geoverbund ABC/J (cooperation between the University of Aachen [A], Bonn [B], Cologne [C] and Forschungszentrum Jülich [J])

The current direktor is Prof. Dr. Jan-Henrik Haunert (WG Geoinformation), his deputy Prof. Dr. Theo Kötter (WG Urban Planning and Land Reallocation).
