Summary

The goal of this subject is to introduce geoinformation technologies to students. The first part of the subject is focused on theoretical background of geoinformatics. Then, the basic principles of functionality and usage possibilities of the global positioning system (GPS), the remote sensing and primarily geographic information systems (GIS) are presented. Then, the subject is focused on map composition creation according to the cartographic rules.
