The Laboratory of GIS comprises all equipment and technical infrastructure related to acquisition or location of spatial data via the field methods or remote sensing methods. Further, it encompasses the software needed for extraction and digital analysis of acquired spatial data. The laboratory manages also spatial datasets generated or purchased by the Institute.

Geospatial data 

  • aerial photogrammetric stereo imagery and orthoimagery for the Slovak Karst and Košice City,
  • airborne adn terrestrial lidar data for Slovak Karst and some parts of the Košice City
Unmanned aerial system Scout B1-100 with a laser scanner and hyperspectral camera.


Airborna lidar data can be used for generating a digital model of the landscape canopy. Th example shows a part of the Silica village in Slovak Karst acquired within the SPATIAL3D project.



Satelite data of the LANDSAT8 mission can be used for calculating the surface temperature. The picture demonstrates that urban vegetation influences the ambient temperature in the city.
