Institute full name:

International Institute for Geo-information Science and Earth Observation

Institute acronym:

ITC

Institute profile:

The International Institute for Geo-information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) is aims at international education, flanked by research and project services. It's international training programmes offer some 40 different specialization courses, at MSc and PhD levels. ITC’s research activities concentrate on Geo-information Science and Earth Observation. ITC has six scientific departments, of which the Department of Earth Systems Analysis (ESA) is the partner in this project. ESA develops models based on remote sensing data and GIS and data integration techniques for: soil resources assessment for multiple uses, especially land degradation assessment and monitoring, soil erosion and surface runoff, natural hazards and disaster management (earthquakes, floods, landslides and desertification-land degradation) in relation to earth dynamic processes. The ITC is also an associate institute of the United Nations University (UNU) on Disaster Geo-Information Management and on Land Administration (http://www.itc.nl/unu). In DESIRE ITC is coordinator of Workblock 4.
