Considering the great variety of more or less comprehensive glossaries already existing in the field of geoinformation, we refrain from preparing and maintaining our own glossary. We therefore would like to refer you at this point to the

Geoinformatik-Service (

of the University of Rostock, which with its lexicon comprising altogether 6500 technical terms provides free of charge presently the most extensive German GI -Glossary (including a German-English and English-German dictionary). Besides numerous other functions also access to specific collections of GI technical terms is given from this site.
