RESEARCH INSTITUTE OF GEODESY, TOPOGRAPHY AND CARTOGRAPHY CONTACTS

INTRO

The mission of the Research Institute is applied and fundamental research in the fields of geodesy, surveying and real estate cadastre registration. It deals with the development and testing of new methodologies, procedures and programme resources. It provides expert consulting in the following areas: establishing and managing a real-estate cadastral information system; geodesy and geodynamics; geodetic engineering; metrology and national standardization in the surveying and cadastre domains; photogrammetry; ground remote sensing; the creation and maintenance of charts and maps; the development and production of special tools; apparatus and measurement systems for geodesy and cartography.

SUCCESS STORIES

The Institute has since its inception provided a variety of activities to support the State Administration of Land Surveying and Cadastre. Among the tools developed here is the CIRKUMZENITAL, an apparatus with an artificial horizon for the concurrent determination of latitude and longitude by the method of fixed heights. This was a unique instrument in its time, much sought by leading international organizations. Notable among the current development achievements of the Institute is its mobile hydrostatic levelling kit, enabling the elevation between two points of interest to be determined to 50 micron precision. One example of this technology’s application is the automated measuring systems situated at both blocks of the Temelín nuclear power plant.
