Faculty of Cartography

The study is carried out in accordance with State Educational Standards for the training of the bachelor’s and master’s degrees in the field of "Cartography and Geoinformatics". The map is a complex work of art, a tool for understanding the world and modern technologies. The need for the profession of a cartographer will always be relevant. Today, cartography is closely related to geoinformatics.

The faculty trains qualified specialists of a wide scope of professional knowledge and experience in the following areas:

  • design and compilation of maps and atlases of various content and purposes;
  • mathematical cartography;
  • design and publication of maps and atlases;
  • topographic and ecological mapping;
  • digital mapping;
  • the use of computer and geoinformation technologies in the production of maps and research;
  • geoinformation research into anthropogenic and natural environments.

Graduates possess modern methods and technologies for creating maps and atlases that  are necessary for the entire cycle of cartographic work –from field surveys to publication of maps.

Description of the education program (obtained skills, area of professional activity, features of the program implementation, what is the advantage of the program over the similar programs at other universities)

Education level: undergraduate studies


Field of study: "Cartography and Geoinformatics"
Mode of study: full time.
Duration: 5 years.


Subject requirements: Russian, geography, mathematics / computer science
The specialists working with spatial data - cartographers and GIS specialists are in demand in the modern labor market. The demand is determined not only by a wide application of maps and GIS projects, but also by the need in constant updating, monitoring the dynamics and the development trends of mapped objects, territories and phenomena. Graduates work at such organizations as: Rosreestr, JSC Roskartografiya, FSBI Center for Geodesy, Cartography and IPD, JSC Russian Space Systems, GBU Mosgorgeotrest, GBU MO Mosoblgeotrest, Yandex LLC, Institute of Geography of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Atlas Print LLC, Geocenter-Consulting CJSC, etc.
During the study the qualified specialists are trained in various areas of cartographic science:
  • design and compilation of various content and purposes maps and atlases;
  • mathematical cartography;
  • visualization of geodata and cartographic design;
  • topographic and ecological mapping;
  • digital mapping;
  • computer and geoinformation technologies in the production of maps and scientific research.
Graduates possess modern methods and technologies for creating maps and atlases that are necessary for the entire cycle of cartographic work from field surveys to publication of maps.
During the training period, students receive in-depth knowledge of related disciplines, studying methods and means of obtaining and processing initial data for mapping. For example, geodesy, higher geodesy, photogrammetry, land management and cadastres. The acquired knowledge allows to expand the professional activity of graduates in related fields in employment.
Education level: Master's degree Field of study: "Cartography and Geoinformatics"
Mode of study: full time
Duration: 5 years.
Subject requirements: a comprehensive exam on the field of study
New types of cartographic and geoinformatics work are emerging, the service market is rapidly developing, in this regard, the need for staffing in the field of cartography and geoinformatics is undergoing major changes. The first place was taken by specialists in the field of automation of all stages of cartographic production, digital mapping, GIS and web technologies, computer compilation and design of maps, geographical analysis of the territory using software and hardware.
The transition to the digital economy requires the introduction of modern technological solutions in the field of obtaining and processing spatial data. The results of the professional activity of a specialist in the field of cartography and geoinformatics are in great demand by the economic subjects of the Russian Federation.
Master's degree implies obtaining competencies giving the right to manage the production of cartographic and geoinformational works, as well as the ability to conduct scientific research.
The teaching staff is highly qualified. During training, research work is constantly carried out with students who take an active part in scientific conferences, have the opportunity to publish the results of their scientific research in collections of scientific articles based on the results of conferences.
