RESEARCH GROUP IN CARTOGRAPHY AND GIS
Understanding your world...
INTRODUCING US

GPCS-UFPR, portuguese acronym for Cartography and GIS research group at Paraná Federal University, was founded in 2000. The research group's main objective is to make Cartography and GIS research in Brazil aligned to international excellence centers.
In other words, research at UFPR must be internationally inserted, which implies on developing studies on technologies for Cartographic Visualization and spatial cognition, Spatial data Modelling, Cartographic Generalization, Digital and Interactive environments for cartography, and cartography and GIS decision automation and decision support systems.
With a growing number of students joining the group, GPCS has formed 14 Msc. and 7 phD and the research works are being developed also with graduation students, through scientific initiation programs, reinforcing integration between all levels of scientific knowledge inside the university. The program is developed under the Geomatics Department of UFPR, which houses the cartographic engineering graduation course and the Post-graduation program in geodetic sciences .
