International conference "GEOPOINT 2024"

Delegation of the Department of Geoinformation Technologies and Space Monitoring of the Earth consisting of students: Denys Saul-Goze, Roman Sych (group 452m), Mykhailo Levchenko (group 442), Yelyzaveta Malysheva (group 445), postgraduate student Kateryna Iliukhina and the Head of the Department Stanislav Gorelyk took part in the International Conference "GEOPOINT 2024" on 7 and 8 March 2024, organised by the Faculty of Land Management of the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine (Kyiv).

The conference was devoted to modern methods in geodesy and land management, assessment of damage from military aggression, topical issues of topographic and geodetic surveys, etc. Interesting master classes were held with GeoFix and ELnav on the principles of operation and possibilities of using the SLAM R100 laser scanner and i89 GNSS receiver in the field. The students of the department made presentations in the plenary and sectional sessions.

Before the start of the conference, a very long-awaited and warm meeting took place between students and teachers who, due to the military invasion, were unable to communicate and study in person. The last time they all saw each other at KhAI was in the autumn of 2021. It was also a pleasure to speak for the first time in 2 years in a crowded audience, where the interested eyes of the conference participants looked at you. I would like to thank all the participants and organisers of the conference, and congratulate those for whom this was their first such experience on the start of their scientific career.
