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

Thanks to Alenka Poplin and her students from Iowa State University for visiting our Research Division during spring break! Together with our students from the International Cartography Master program, they were introduced to the research field of emotion mapping and jointly conducted interviews in which they explored how Vienna is perceived by its inhabitants and where people find restorative places in the city.
This week we had the pleasure to welcome three prominent guests who shared their expertise with our students:
In his guest lecture, Kenneth Field shared his journey of making the book “Cartography.” On this occasion, he handed over a hard-cover copy of his book for our library. Thanks!
On March 29, students of the International Master of Cartography went on a hike to Hermannskogel. The hill is the highest peak of Vienna and a geodetic fundamental point. The small exhibition at Habsburgwarte gave some insights into its history as the kilometre zero of cartographic measurements in Austria-Hungary.
