Institute of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing
Department of Department of Real Estate, Planning and Geoinformatics


The Department of Real Estate, Planning and Geoinformatics provides the only university-level education for surveyors in Finland.



Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing are technologies of measurement, observation and control within the science of surveying and mapping. Basically, all activity is based on images used for both acquiring and managing geoinformation. The applications include environmental monitoring with satellite imagery, large-scale urban mapping with areal imagery, 3D virtual modeling of buildings, industrial plants, and natural environment
.The number of researchers on a pay-roll is about 15 persons, some of us being active postgraduates as well.

The Chair of Photogrammetry was established in 1957. Since 1994, the Institute has been chaired by Prof. Dr. Henrik Haggrén. Read more about the history of the Institute.
