Investigació bàsica i aplicada a les àrees de treball clàssiques de la Geodèsia, la Teledetecció i Fotogrametria, la Topografia, i, en general, totes les relacionades amb la informació geogràfica i la seva representació cartogràfica. Però amb especial atenció als nous sensors i tècniques per la captura, processat, emmagatzematge i tractament de la informació geogràfica: sistemes GNSS (GPS, GALILEO,...), sensors Làser Escàner (LIDAR, terrestre i aeri), altimetria i captura d’imatges per satèl·lit, avaluació de riscos naturals emprant GIS, etc.
