Cartography unit of the Department of Geography
The visualisation of spatial information is the primary task of the cartographic section of the department. The spectrum of its activities includes all areas of cartography. This includes illustrations for publications as well as large maps, small-scale maps, large-scale town plans, topographic maps and of course thematic maps. The map production process consists of editorial work, developing suitable forms of presentation and the actual production of maps on the computer. Data from GIS systems can be processed and displayed graphically for publications.
The following services are offered:
- Graphic design

- Scanning service- from slides to large maps
- Posters up to A0
- Administration of the media data bank
- Software courses
Cartographic services are open to departmental staff only. We are happy to advise students.
