Department of geoinformation technologies and space monitoring of the Earth
The Department of Geoinformation Technologies and Space Monitoring of the Earth is a part of the Faculty of Rocket and Space Engineering in KhAI. Acting Head of the Department - Candidate of Technical Sciences Gorelik Stanislav Igorevich.
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 a prominent figure and innovator in the field of geoinformation technologies, a doctor of technical sciences, a laureate of the State Prize of Ukraine, a professor Krasovsky Grigory Yakovlevich who has been pursuing this goal for 12 years since 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'.
