IFGI Photo Competition - New Deadline!

New deadline! Participate in the photo competition "Geoinformatics is Everywhere" till December 14th and win a gift certificate for 50 Euros from Amazon. More information and submission on

Do you know the connection between a romanesco broccoli and the fields of mathematics? There is one, similar to the connection between a Geographical Informationsystem and the field of Geoinformatics but it might not be as clear as the link with the broccoli.

Although Geoinformatics is gaining more and more attention, all the connections this science has to our daily life are most of the times not obvious at first or even second sight. The relationship between a GIS and Geoinformatics is obvious. Geoinformatics is part of a navigation system or geocaching which is also well known by many people. However, only few people know that Geoinformatics is also used for archaeological excavations in Egypt, the monitoring of the discharge of slurry by farmers or the display of waiting times at bus stops. With the “Geoinformatics is Everywhere” slogan, we want to discover those daily connections and we want YOU to help us. Through a new photo competition we want to find out the impact of Geoinformatics on our daily life.

Upload your picture and a short description on the page below and get a chance to win one of four gift certificates for Amazon for over 50 Euro. The most creative submissions will be nominated by a jury of students and lecturers and become published. The four best submissions will win a price.

Submit now:

P.s.: The structure of the romanesco broccoli repeats itself endlessly and und resembles a mathematical pattern known as fractal. ;-)
