Department of geoinformation technologies and space monitoring of the Earth
Geoinformation systems and technologies are the fastest growing direction of information technologies. Knowledge and skills obtained under this educational program make it possible to solve the task of analyzing geospatial data of various fields (meteorology, land management, ecology, municipal management, state defense, agriculture, logistics, etc.)
Geodesy and land management are the most important components of the country's economy. The educational program is aimed at training specialists in the fields of geodetic and land management activities, normative and expert monetary valuation of lands, land law, cadastral data organization, land management resources control, as well as related industries (construction, cartography, agricultural sectoretc)
The educational program 'Space monitoring of the Earth' is unique for Ukraine, it reveals the entire technological process - from receiving via aircraft (including unmanned) and spacecraft data, their processing and thematic decryption for various spheres of activity (military, construction, agricultural, management, environmental, etc.), municipal health protection education, etc.
Department of Geoinformation Technologies and Space Monitoring of the Earth entersto the faculty of rocket and space engineering in KhAI. Head of the department - Candidate of technical sciences, associate professor, Horelyk Stanislav Ihorovych.
The Department 407 is equipped with modern computer and geodetic equipment, including its own station for receiving remote sensing data from satellites NOAA.
The department also has a license to use the most powerful and modern software package of the company Esri to analyse geoinformation data, processing of satellite images, as well as the creation and processing of map data - ArcGIS
The teachers of the department systematically receive intensive training courses in Vancouver Island University (Canada)
The department was founded by an outstanding figure and innovator in the field of geoinformationtechnology, Professor, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Laureate of the State Prize ofUkraine - Krasovsky Hryhoriy Yakovych, who has been working towards this goal for 18 yearssince the opening of the specialty in 2004.
The first intake of students in the direction of 'Geodesy, Cartography and Land Management' was held in 2004. Then the specialty was based on the department of the Faculty №5 'Radio-technical systems of aircraft'.
In 2008, together with the first graduation of bachelors, the first batch masters and specialists in the field of geoinformation systems and technologies were recruited.
In 2013, a new specialty 'Space Monitoring of the Earth' was accredited.
2On November 20, 2016, the KhAI was restructured. A new Department of Geoinformational Technologies and Space Monitoring of the Earth appeared on the basis of Faculty №4 'Rocket and Space Technology'.
