Siberian State Academy of Geodesy

The academy presents a modern holding comprising the following institutes:

  • Institute of Geodesy and Management;

  • Institute of Optics and Optical technologies;

  • Institute of Cadastre and Geographic Information Systems;

  • Institute of Remote Sensing and Natural Resources Management;

  • Institute of Distant Training

  • as well as representative offices and branches.

The strategic purpose of the academy is to develop the university highly competitive at the market of education and R&D. The academy is ready for cooperation in the fields of education, research and production.
The academy is aimed at education and qualification improvement of bachelors, engineers, masters and high-quality specialists in 7 areas and 24 specialties in the area of geodesy, management, optic technology, land management and land cadastre, photogrammetry and remote sensing, device making, informational systems, safe living, geoecology, cartography and economics. At present there are 9500 students at the academy.
All research is conducted in 9 scientific areas and correspond to education subjects and most acute areas of development of science and technology:

  1. Space-time calculation of coordinates and gravitational field of the Earth.

  2. Geodynamics. Mathematical processing, interpretation and design of surveys in four-dimensional geodesy.

  3. Satellite and inertial positioning. Application of satellite navigational geodesy systems and engineering geodesy in hydrographical works, navigation, etc.

  4. Photogrammetric methods of processing air-space pictures. Automation of digital processing of data, development of software and technologies for digital orthotransformation.

  5. Methods of creation and utilization of maps of various purpose. Monitoring of the Earth surface, development of GIS and technologies for making electronic topographic and ecological maps.

  6. Geoinformation systems and cadastre. Development of automated technologies for inventoring of land, creation of geoinformational systems and methods for digital cartography for the purposes of municipal cadastre.

  7. Geodesy support to design, construction and exploitation of engineering complexes, including nuclear and heat power stations, industrial enterprises, etc.

  8. Survey data bases for the territorial sustained development.

  9. Optics. Development of optical and optical-electronic devices, systems and technologies of various purposes.

Activities in photogrammetry, remote sensing and geographic information systems:

  • development of the virtual GIS of Novosibirsk;

  • orthophotoplan of Novosibirsk and its outskirts based on satellite images with 60 cm resolution;

  • lately, the academy performs a lot of scientific research work for the Ministry of Defense;

  • work on innovation projects with such companies as oil production companies of Yukos, Rosneft, Sibneft, Slavneft;

To implement such projects, the academy has ample amount of devices (up to 20 satellite receivers and electronic tacheometers), car park (6 specialized vehicles) and a lot of computers (including portable ones.). To implement complex field works, interdepartment laboratories have been set up. For chamber processing of the pictures there exist a number of specialized laboratories: digital processing of aerial photographs, computer graphics, data processing. At these laboratories there work post-graduates, doctorants, teachers and students of the academy. For many of them such work is the basis for development and introduction of R&D innovations. Annually, some 300-400 scientific articles are published based on the results of such contractual work. Fundamental and applied R&D work is performed at the departments, in specialized inter-department and department laboratories.
The Institute of Remote Sensing and Natural Resources Management was formed on September 28, 1999 through reorganization of the aerial photo geodesy faculty to solve the tasks of education and research works through digital cartography and photogrammetry in the area of topography, land cadastre and geoecology. There are over 600 students. At present the institute comprises 4 departments: - photogrammetry and remote sensing; -cartography and GIS; - environmental and natural resources management;- physical training and sports, as well as scientific-production laboratories of digital photogrammetry and digital cartography.
