Science and research

Modern geodesy has become an interdisciplinary science. Many fields of science and technology use methods that have long been used in Geodesy. We can distinguish here, among others, astronomy, medicine, but also construction, architecture and environmental engineering.
The Department of Geodesy bases its scientific and research profile on modern measurement methods and analysis of the obtained data with the use of interdisciplinary approach. In addition to typical geodetic measurements of engineering structures,  it also conducts: laser scanning surveys of cultural heritage objects; gravimetric measurements; advanced image analyzes, among others, to obtain descriptions of the human face, which can be used, for example, in medicine for research on coma and neurological diseases.

Department of Geodesy

Collaborates closely with the economy.

As part of our service activities, we offer, among other things:

  • Low-altitude photogrammetry – photogrammetric measurements from unmanned aerial vehicles
  • Low-altitude remote sensing – remote sensing measurements from unmanned aerial vehicles
  • Theoretical and practical training in the operation, maintenance, and piloting of unmanned aerial vehicles, especially in the field of low-altitude photogrammetry
  • Designing Python tools for advanced GIS analysis
  • Performing gravity measurements in marine areas
  • Determining regional geoid surfaces
  • Determining regional gravity acceleration field compensation corrections for INS purposes.
  • Weather models for selected areas and timeframes
  • Scanning, processing of 3D models, analysis performed on 3D models
  • Non-invasive material testing using remote sensing methods
  • Surveying support for investments


  • Unmanned aerial vehicles – training in a pilot-trainee system
  • Unmanned aerial vehicles for photogrammetric and remote sensing measurements
  • Heavy unmanned aerial vehicle for carrying probes and collecting samples
  • Unmanned aerial vehicle with a head for light pollution measurements
  • Marine Gravity System MGS – 6
  • Laser scanners and photogrammetric cameras
  • Satellite positioning receivers
  • GNSS reference station
  • Tachymeters and precise levels
