Summary

The course will provide an introductory overview of geoinformation technologies (GIT). Attention is paid to themes common to all the GIT, such as positioning, geodata, spatial objects and data models. It is discussed in more detail the issue of GIS and students are briefly acquainted with other geoinformation technologies, such as digital terrain models, satellite navigation and positioning systems, remote sensing and mobile geoinformation technologies. space. Time. Positioning in time. Feature. Components of feature description. Spatial modeling of the real world. Geodata gathering. Geoinformation technologies overview.
