For the acquisition of terrestrial data, research is performed on a complete
range of topographical and photogrammetrical instruments: levelling instruments,
robotic total stations, digital cameras for terrestrial photogrammetry,
different GNSS receivers, terrestrial laser scanners, mobile mapping,...
The research activities in the field of remote sensing and photogrammetry
focus on different applications with satellite images and aerial photographs.
These are processed to create digital elevation models, ortho-photos and 3D visualizations.
The main research topics in the field of bathymetry are real-time positioning,
autonomous underwater vehicles, computational geometry, triangulation
algorithms and filtering techniques of 3D data.
