IKG at ETH Zurich Logo Institute of Cartography and Geoinformation, ETH Zurich

The Institute of Cartography was founded in 1925 by Prof. Eduard Imhof. It is the worlds' oldest cartographic institute at the university level. Eduard Imhof is the founder of the modern, academic cartography. Research at the institute traditionally dealt with topographic cartography (relief depiction), thematic mapping and atlas cartography (school atlases, national atlases). These are still the most important research topics today, but they are always adapted to new requirements, new media and recent technologies. The institute is also the editor and developer of two award-winning atlases: the "Atlas of Switzerland" (national atlas) and the "Swiss School Atlas" (Schweizer Schulatlas). In 2011, with a new professorship in geoinformation-engineering, the scope of the institute could be broadened, which resulted in the renaming of the institute to "Institute of Cartography and Geoinformation".
