State and prospects of Lviv plans research

The purpose of the paper is to determine the state of research on the peculiarities of mapping and cartographic works of Lviv and, on this basis, to develop tasks for continuing such research on systematic foundations using GIS technologies. Methodology. The theoretical and methodological basis of the research was formed by modern ideas about the significance of a map as an important document of geospatial information and about cartography as a crucial method of recording the state of events and phenomena.

Organization of geoinformation monitoring of geospatial data of green plants of the street and road network of the city of Odesa

The purpose of this work is the introduction of a permanent system of real-time observations of green spaces to update geospatial data. Methodology: To achieve this goal, we monitored green spaces with the help of GIS technologies, displaying up-to-date information for each plant and storing the history of changes in each object. This work is divided into two stages. The first stage involves making an inventory of green spaces and compiling an object passport.

Information technology for the analysis of the dynamic of the carbon balance of forests in Poland

Forest management involves the use of large areas of land and a large amount of related information. Therefore, the use of geographic information technologies (GIS) is substantiated for the processing, analysis, and visualization of information in forest ecosystems. Green plants and trees deposit carbon and retain it for a long time, they are the main absorbers of carbon on land, so to determine the carbon balance the study of wood growth, accumulation of phytomass in forest ecosystems is necessary.

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.

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.
