The Steibeis-Transfer Centre of FeLis was established in 2005 by Mrs. Prof Dr. B. Koch with the intent to pass knowledge acquired through university research and development to business.  Mrs. Prof. Dr. Koch has led the Department of Remote Sensing and Landscape Information Systems (FeLis) of the Albert-Ludwig University of Freiburg since 1994.  STZ-FeLis is a spin-off of this department, with which the goal of offering innovative services based on the results of current research and the utilization of personnel and technical resources of FeLis will be pursued.  FeLis can build upon extensive long-term experience in the field of geodata preparation, mapping in the environmental and forestry sector with remote sensing data and the development of geodata infrastructures.  FeLis has access to extensive hard- and software equipment (in the field of GIS with a focus on ArcGIS) and through an experienced project director and the commitment of well educated graduates, can offer secure high-quality project handling both in the field of research and development and in the field of commercial services.
