    Geo-information can be found anywhere in today's society. When dealing with climate change, the outbreak of diseases or natural disasters (like tsunamis) for instance, geo-information can be of great help. Organisations at different levels all over the world (partly) base their decisions on geo-information. Geo-information will also be used in everyday life, for instance in applications like Google Earth or TomTom. Many professional domains, such as management of natural resources, land use planning and management, nature conservation, environmental monitoring and sustainable agricultural development, require reliable spatial information and methodologies. The MSc Geo-information Science is dedicated to solve complex environmental problems in these domains. As a rapidly growing discipline, Geo-information Science combines expertise from the fields of: information and communication technology (ICT); geographical information systems (GIS), remote sensing, photogrammetry, GPS and mapping; agricultural, environmental and social sciences such as land use planning, geography, soil science and communication.
