2. Large scale (urban, cadastre, and utility) and medium scale (topographic 
and image) mapping processes, project management, specifications, and 
quality assurance and control. 
3. Combined adjustment of Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and 
photogrammetric data. 
4. Integration (and automation) of photogrammetric systems with cartographic 
and remote sensing systems, especially using SPOT data. Production line 
for topographic map updating and image maps. 
5. Microcomputer based thematic mapping. 
6. Automatic (scan) digitizing for line maps, image maps, and database 
building and the related data processing, especially within a low-cost 
7. Feature extraction, pattern recognition, and texture analysis in remotely 
sensed data. 
8. The revision of Digital Geodatabases especially with respect to suitable 
data models. The properties of various data structures for 2 and 3 
dimensional database objects, and related database operations. 
It is departmental policy that about 20% of staff members' time be spent on 
research, including time spent supervising student research. Generally an 
M.Sc. student will have two supervisors, unless the topic falls entirely 
within the competence of one staff member. The result of the two preceding 
constraints is that efficiency is achieved if a student's project falls into 
one of the above eight directions. All the directions contribute towards 
improving methodologies, and it is to be expected that a student doing 
methodological research would test this within a small project of some use to 
his home country or organisation. Students are therefore encouraged to bring 
data, imagery, or documents to ITC which relate to their home situation. 
Towards the end of their research period students are required to present 
their work to their fellow students and staffmembers, and as much as possible 
at external scientific meetings. They are also encouraged to produce a paper 
of publishable standard describing their work. W T e consider it important that 
our M.Sc. students begin to acquire professional skills such as writing and 
talking about their work, as well as the specific technical skills associated 
with mapping and geoinforma'cion production.
