The three departments of the Institute of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (IPF) conduct research and development in the fields of remote sensing, computer vision, and geoinformation technologies. Our emphasis is thereby on sensors, models, methodologies, and processing systems for retrieval of semantic and/or quantitive information from remotely sensed data, occasionally integrated with background data from geo-databases.

IPF is involved in numerous projects and co-operations ranging from fundamental research to development of operational systems. For academic education, the IPF team teaches students in different fundamental and advanced subjects of Geodesy & Geoinformation, Remote Sensing, Computer Science, Geosciences, and many others and provides supervision of BSc., MSc. and PhD theses.
