Welcome to the website of the Research Group Cartography at TU Wien. We are one of the seven research groups that form the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation.

We are proud to announce that PhD candidate and lecturer Florian Ledermann has won the award for “Best Student Paper” at this year’s GI_Forum conference in Salzburg, Austria. The jury unanimously voted for his paper “Analysing Digital Maps Online: A Reverse Engineering Approach” and praised the author’s accomplishment of making the complex workings of online maps transparent to a wide audience. A preprint of the paper, which will appear in print later this year in the GI_Forum journal, is available here.
As in former semesters, we would like to showcase a selection of extraordinary student projects from this summer semester. The following maps are results from the class Project Map Creation.
