3D data management and visualization
The goal of the project is create new methods for the management and visualisation of 3D geospatial information.
Digital elevation model (DEM) quality, error models and use in spatial analyses
National DEM represents the Earth’s surface forms as a regular mesh of height points and it is part of the national basic spatial data sets.
Evaluation and demonstration of array database management systems using national geospatial data (RDA-ArrayDB)
In the project RDA-Array DB, we will evaluate two array database management systems (DBMSs) using national geospatial data. The aim is also to demonstrate, how those systems store and retrieve multidimensional geospatial information, and how they carry out simple geospatial analysis tasks.
Finnish Grid and Cloud Infrastructure (FGCI)
Computing is rapidly developing to be distributed over the internet.
Geospatial info-mobility service by real-time data-integration and generalisation (GiMoDig)
In the project the research was done for delivering spatial data from the national topographic databases through network connections to mobile users.
Map services for outdoor leisure activities supported by social networks (MenoMaps II)
In the project new possibilities for creating map-based leisure services for outdoor activities are investigated.
Measurement, Monitoring and Environmental Assessment (MMEA)
The aim of the MMEA research consortium is to develop new tools, standards and methods for environmental measurement.
Multipublishing in supporting leisure outdoor activities (MenoMaps)
The aim of this Tekes- project is to carry out research on the utilization of multipublishing for the purpose of outdoor activities.
Natural Resources Risk Management in GeoIT solutions
LuHaGeoIT project aims to contribute to a more open flow of information on climate change research.
Quick-response Uncertainty-aware Geocomputation for Very Large Datasets (Quick-GIS)
The Quick-GC project has two main objectives.
Real-time transformation services in the context of an SDI
The aim of the research in this project is to set up pilot services for coordinate system transformations, schema transformations and generalization to test these functionalities in the context of the national SDI.
SDI expert services
The aim of the project is to advance the development of the SDI on the national and on the international level.
Study on harmonisation of the data models used in topographic data management
The harmonisation of data models will be needed to increase the usability of topographic data collected in municipalities.
Topographic data system: methods for effective and multifaceted use (MaastoArray)
We investigate in the project new ways to use the laser scanning elevation data.
Web Services and geospatial interoperability
Recently ontology research has provided a formal approach for improving the semantic interoperability.
