INSPIREID implementation in the topographic database of the main state topographic map of Ukraine

The article researches the principles of creation and assignment of a unique identifier inspireId to objects of classes in the topographic database (TDB), which is developed on the basis of the concept of model-driven architecture. The issue of automatic generation of a unique identifier inspireId and the rules of its life-cycle is researched.

Tectogenesis reconstruction of Kaniv Near-Dniper area on the base of structural-morphometric analysis

Structural-morphometric analysis and study of Kaniv Near-Dniper relief with the using of the spatial analysis and modeling has been carried out. Base level and vertex hypsometry surfaces with different order have been created. There analysis allowed to define the phases of the relief evolution in this region. The relief evolution character during neotectonic stage has been described. 

Geophysical prospection and construction of GIS-based model of Inkerman adits with the purpose of localizing of volatile amunition from World War II time

We represent the results of complex investigations aimed at searching for volatile amunition in Inkerman adits, which were used as military stores and were blown up by soviet forces before withdrawal from Sevastopol at the end of June 1942.

Technology of optimal site selection for solar photovoltaic power plants using GIS and remote sensing techniques

Purpose. The use of ground-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants to generate electricity has increased substantially worldwide over the past decade. This growth has been driven by policy incentives such as feed-in tariff, as well as low cost and high performance of solar panels. As the use of solar PV farms grows, the need to find the best locations for them will also increase. Optimally siting PV farms is important for maximizing beneficial characteristics of projects while minimizing negative ones.

Planning of hard coal underground mining operations in the aspect of GIS tools

Purpose. This article will discuss the general problems in planning hard coal underground mining operations. The conditions of Upper Silesian Coal Basin perfectly illustrate the complexity of that process. The exemplary concept modern IT Production Management System will be shown.  of. The multitude of data contained in the central database allows to take a full advantage of the capabilities of GIS tools that permit fast spatial visualization of the coal deposit and efficiently manage multiple tasks of planning of the mining operations.

The first step to sketch the spatio-temporal evolution of biochemical and physical parameters involving in the harmful algal blooms (hab) in mattatall lake (Nova Scotia, Canada)

Many watercourses in Nova Scotia (Canada) have recently had algal blooms in a surprisingly increasing way in frequency and diversity without any good understanding or explanation about causes and effects. The blooms triggered in Mattatall Lake (Wentworth, Nova Scotia) have many particular aspects: toxic species domination, nutrients increasing on a monthly basis, and blooms that co-exist with icy conditions.

Studing the tectogenesis in the middle course basin of river latorytsia based on analysis of basic releif surfaces

A possibility of studying the tectonic processes in the folded mountain areas using the structural morphometry and the GIS-analysis has been demonstrated. The results of analysis of basic surfaces, constructed based on non-uniformly scaled topographic maps, have been discussed. The correlations have been revealed between the orography forms, tectonic and volcanic structures on the Carpathian model polygon. 

Photointerpretation with the use of processed satellite images

The structure of landscape and her changeability in time and space is to possible to analyse on several ways using near this the different methods and investigative tools. One of investigative applied technologies in investigation of landscape are Geographic Information System (GIS). This technology makes possible the making to perform the opinion of landscape structure by helping of ecological coefficieus and indexes based on varied sources of information.

The Role of GIS in Evaluating Cartographic and Survey Evidence in the Determination of Historic and Cultural Landscapes

This paper will provide a generic background to the role of GIS in recording and re-creating landscapes based upon a range of documentary and cartographic material, with case studies derived from the analysis of historic, cultural, and post-industrial case studies. The paper will then address the specific use of GIS in analysing, evaluating, and presenting a range of historical landscape scenarios based upon research that has been conducted at the University of East London (England) and the University of Agriculture in Kraków (Poland).
