TU Berlin


The campus of the Technische Universtät Berlin is located in the center of Berlin. The university with its 7 faculties and 47 institutes focuses on achieving four sharply-defined core goals: building a distinctive profile for our university, ensuring exceptional performance in research and teaching, providing our graduates with excellent qualifications, in addition to a forward-looking approach to efficient university governance. Strong regional, national and international networking with partners in science and industry is an important aspect in all endeavors of the university.

319 professors and 2130 research staff attend to approximately 28,250 (20% foreign) students that are currently enrolled at the university. At the Technische Universtät Berlin on average 25 habilitations and 420 doctoral degrees are received each year.

The Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation Sciences is part of the faculty IV – Planning – Building – Environment – and offers an international masters course. Students can choose to recess their knowledge in the fields of

  • Methods of Geoinformation Science,
  • Engineering Surveying and Adjustment Techniques,
  • Precission Navigation and – Positioning,
  • Satellite Geodesy and Earth System Science, and
  • Planetary Geodesy.

The PRoVisG group at Technische Universtät Berlin will process a representative part of the US Mars Exploration Rover (MER) imagery to generate 2D and 3D data products such as Digital Terrain Models (DTMs), panoramic greyscale, colour and multispectral mosaics, range maps and a set of representative scientifically relevant results. Rover and aerobot mock-up equipment available at some of the other involved participants will be used to verify and demonstrate the processing of data which should be a great work experience for the currently envisaged ESA rover missions ExoMars.

These demonstrations will be performed within testbed tests and a field test campaign. A summer school to be organized at the Technische Universtät Berlin is attached to this final test in July or August of 2011.
