Research Overview

Higher Geodesy (HG) is one of seven Research Units at the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation, Vienna University of Technology. The Research Unit HG focuses mainly on the following topics:

Satellite Geodesy Very Long Baseline Interferometry New Technologies
GNSS (Galileo, PPP, ..) Scheduling Ringlaser
Atmosphere (troposphere and ionosphere) Raw data processing (correlation) High performance computing
Earth orientation
Reference frames  
Navigation (sensor fusion, integrity, authentication) VLBI to artificial objects  
  Source structure  


Basis for the research is the development and maintenance of the Vienna VLBI and Satellite Software (VieVS) which is the umbrella for our software developments in VLBI, GNSS, etc.
