International Institute for Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) was founded in 1950 and currently located in Enschede, Netherlands. University of Twente was founded in 1961 as a technical university and also located in Enschede, Netherlands. Since 2010 ITC joined University of Twente as a Faculty of Geo-information Sciences and Earth Observation.
At Water resources department, headed by professor Bob Su, the ‘Soil Canopy Observation, Photochemistry and Energy fluxes’ (SCOPE) model was developed.
