The first part of this report contains a detailed account of the development of geoinformation methods since 1972, the year of the first landsat-satellite. In 1974, it was established that the information obtained from satellites always has to be complemented with aerial surveys and field studies. That meant an upheaval for conventional methods such as photogrammetry, aerial photo interpretation and cartographics. With these methods it is possible to collect, manipulate, evaluate and store geoinformation; both jointly and in an interdisciplinary way. The latter part of the report deals with following aspects of geoinformation: a survey of methods together with aspects on the choice of study areas (thickness of sediment covers as a function of the geometrical shape of valley segments); storing of data, archives and libraries for geoinformation methods; education and areas for future research and development work. A long list of references is also included in the report. /TRRL/
