Global Geodesy

Global Geodesy studies various phenomena such as the shape of the Earth, fluctuations of the Earth´s rotation and the gravity field. This entails the development and use of manifold methods to record, model and interpret components of the System Earth on diverse spatial and temporal scales. Complementary sensor systems and satellite missions are employed to record highly precise geometrical and gravity data, which are checked by independent procedures and validated

Engineering Geodesy

Engineering Geodesy is the discipline of the recording, delineation and monitoring of local and regional geometry-related phenomena, with particular attention to quality assessment, sensor systems and reference frames .
