Tasks from the field of geodesy (in its narrow sense) are provided mainly for the Surveying and Mapping Authority of the Republic of Slovenia. These are R&D projects for the modernisation and maintenance of the Slovenian spatial reference system. 

We were actively involved in the creation of the Strategy of the Geodetic Reference System of Slovenia, followed by the realisation of a high-quality national spatial reference system based on the common European Spatial Reference System (ESRS) – the so-called »Norwegian Project«.

We were also involved in the planning and realisation of the national network of permanent GNSS stations called SIGNAL. We manage the GPS Service that covers analytical, operational and data dissemination network related tasks.

For the transformation of spatial databases, we developed a web service called Ekspres koordinator (Express coordinator).

Our research work in the field of geodesy covers geometrical as well as physical geodesy, i.e. study of shape and dimensions of the Earth, its gravity field and geoid surface. We also cooperate in the measurements and modelling of the Earth’s magnetic field and study of the Earth’s atmosphere – the latter especially in connection to the impacts of maximum solar activities on the satellite positioning.

Za transformacije prostorskih podatkovnih zbirk smo razvili spletno storitev Ekspres koordinator.

Naše raziskovalno delo na področju geodezije pokriva tako geometrijsko kot tudi fizikalno geodezijo, torej proučevanje oblike in razsežnosti Zemlje, njenega težnostnega polja in ploskve geoida. Sodelujemo pa tudi pri meritvah in modeliranju Zemljinega magnetnega polja in proučevanju Zemljine atmosfere – slednje posebej v povezavi z vplivi izrednih Sončevih aktivnosti na satelitsko določanje položaja.
