The Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing laboratory was formally established in April 2016 as part of the Faculty of Environmental Science; however, the application of geoinformation technologies in ecology and other environmental fields has taken place at the Department of Applied Geoinformatics and Spatial Planning since 2007. The laboratory is equipped with unmanned devices with the possibility of mounting an RGB camera, multispectral sensors and thermal imaging. Integral parts of the equipment are tourist navigation devices and geodetic apparatuses. The laboratory offers a wide range of software such as ArcGIS, ENVI, PhotoScan, PIX4Dmapper, LeicaGeoOffice and others.
We offer cooperation in the collection and processing of data in the following areas:
- aerial photography and video,
- georeferenced images, oblique images,
- orthophoto-mosaic of a particular area,
- digital surface model,
- images in spectral bands B, G, R, RE, NIR (490-900nm).
- vectorization of raster documents,
- coordinate data transformations
- visualization of spatial data (2D and 3D)
- creation of topographical characteristics,
- spatial/network/time data analyses,
- creation of map outputs.
- field measurements using a geodetic apparatus in the RTK mode,
- consultations of the selection of appropriate spatial data or satellite images.
- identification of water/forest areas,
- type and species composition of forests,
- health condition of vegetation,
- monitoring of micro-habitat,
- evaluation of the functional aspects of a landscape.
We lend out (for CULS students and employees):
- laser rangefinders (Leica Disto),
- manual GNSS receivers (Garmin eTrex, Oregon),
- universal GNSS receivers (Garmin GLO),
- geodetic GNSS apparatuses (Leica, optionally in the RTK mode).
