Kort og Matrikelstyrelsen in Copenhagen, Denmark, has research in geodesy and cartography as well as
seismology. Approximately 25 employees out of more than 500 are scientists.
The seismology section has 6 employees working on improvements of the
seismograph networks in Denmark and Greenland, reporting
traditional readings of seismic phases to European and global earthquake
centers, as well as doing original research, especially in the regional
earthquake occurrence, the regional deep seismic structure, and
microseisms. In these years a deep lithosphere study is carried out in
central Greenland from east coast to west coast. The seismology section
functions as the national authority for the Danish involvement in the
Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty for nuclear weapons.
The Danish Survey and Cadastre has the responsibility to map the Danish
land and sea area, and it administers the Danish cadastre. It supports
Danish authorities with basic surveying and mapping. And sales of maps to
national and regional authorities as well as to private companies and
individuals is an important income. The scope of the Danish Survey and
Cadastre includes research, from basic to applied, in the fields of
interest. Many international research projects have been based in the
institution, especially in geodesy.
