The main research topic carried out at the Department is the improvement of measurement and calculation methods for the needs of integrated geodesy, cartography and GIS, including: optimal use of the quasi-geoid model in leveling, development of geostatistical methods, development of algorithms increasing the reliability and accuracy of measurement results, testing of instruments for geodetic measurements, as well as automation of astrometric measurements.
The research topics also include issues of satellite geodesy related to the use of RTN GNSS technology for measurement of objects difficult to access, development of GNSS satellite orbit prediction methods, precise GNSS positioning and monitoring of seismic phenomena using GNSS techniques.
In the field of cartography and geographic information systems, research is carried out to, among others: automate cartographic generalization, design and implement spatial data processing algorithms and object classification algorithms, design real estate cadastre databases, and harmonize and visualize georeferencing databases.
