In Khabarovsk lab opens GIS technologies

June 7 Pacific National University (PNU) the grand opening of the laboratory of geographic information technologies — the first and only in the Far East. The laboratory will deploy a regional center services space.

Specialists Department of Natural Resources and Ecology demonstrated how to use spatial data for the detection and monitoring of forest fires, to assess their degree of hazard and determine the damages. On the ground, even with the aid of aircraft, particularly in the outback of the Far East, they are not always able to detect and space technologies enable you to respond quickly and "point." Today, information gathered by the spacecraft Roscosmos, can be used in all fields of activity, providing tremendous cost savings and the ability to quickly respond to any emergency situation, for example, to man-made and natural disasters.

Remote sensing of the Earth's surface, including photographs of her in various spectral bands, can be ultra-precise electronic maps of natural and mineral resources, urban planning and road network.

Information from space also makes it possible to identify areas of illegal logging, even in the taiga. And not only provide data to respond to the relevant structures, but also to prepare the documentation for the collection of material damage to the perpetrators. After all, the satellite images with high resolution are accurate: what species of trees cut down to what extent — they can count up to the number of trunks, they say, by stumps.

In connection with the opening of the laboratory is planned to introduce a PNU training courses for a wide range of profiles on mastering the fundamentals of space and related computer technology.
