The geoinformatics competence area covers expertise in the entire value chain of geodata within GTK. Scientific research on geoinformatics at GTK focus on issues related to data acquisition, geodata information systems, spatial data analysis, spatial data mining, geodata modelling and data delivery services. These are themes that cross-cut all the other competence areas and aim to create added value for geodata via digitalization.
