ITC was founded in 1950 by then Prime Minister Schermerhorn of the Netherlands as the country’s contribution to the United Nations Development Assistance Programme (UNDAP). Originally named the International Training Centre for Aerial Survey, its focus was on aerial photography and map making, with the goal of establishing base maps for countries without a spatial infrastructure.Over the years, the institute kept pace with technological and societal developments in the field of remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). In 2010, ITC became a faculty of the University of Twente with a focus on geo-information science and earth observation. Today, ITC covers many more subject areas than in the early years. This video tells the story of ITC.
